Kaitlin O’Neil returned to school to explore and further her passion for teaching young children “I knew that earning a master's degree would allow me to do a better job of teaching children,” she says, “and would expand on the theories and design that I learned in my undergraduate psychology program.” Currently, Ms. O’Neil is an elementary school teacher for Baltimore County Public Schools. “After completing several long-term substitute positions for Baltimore County Public Schools, I was offered a full time teaching position,” she says. After maintaining a 4.0 grade point average at Strayer University, Ms. O’Neil says her master’s degree has prepared her to pursue her goal to become a curriculum designer, a position she looks forward to, as it gives her the opportunity to develop content that will contribute to student growth. In addition to her Strayer University master’s degree, Ms. O’Neil earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and during her course of study, received the Nita Barbour Early Childhood Award, for demonstrating the spirit of Early Childhood Education. In her Baltimore community, Ms. O’Neil is a youth leader for teens at her church and plans faith-centered events. She also volunteers at her school, assisting the music teachers in directing the school play each year. In her free time, Ms. O’Neil enjoys reading, riding her bike and spending time with her boyfriend Greg, her friends, and family.
