• Welcome to Mrs. O’Shea’s Third Grade Class! 

    My name is MacKenzie O’Shea and I am so excited to be your child’s 3rd grade teacher. This is my fifth year of teaching and my first year at Mississippi. I have taught second grade the last two years at Champlin Brooklyn Park Academy within the Anoka-Hennepin School District and also previsouly taught two years outside of the district. I was born and raised in the great state of Iowa. I moved to Minnesota to play soccer for the Gopher Women’s soccer team and attend college. Go GOPHERS! RAH! I graduated in 2014 with my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and then completed my Masters of Education in Spring of 2015. In the summer of 2015 my now-husband, Kyle, and I were married. We have the cutest, most adorable, snuggable, lovable, puppy. Her name is Willow and the students will hear about her a lot over the course of the year. We love to visit state parks, paddle board, hike, eat ice cream, and hangout on the deck.

    I am looking forward to working with you and your child in reaching his or her fullest potential. We will have many wonderful experiences and opportunities to learn and grow in the days ahead.

    I believe that communication is the key to a great parent-teacher relationship. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. You can send me a note, email or call. Email is the easiest and quickest way to get ahold of me. I will also do my part by keeping emails updated and notes home. 

    Also, feel free to participate in your child’s third grade year as much as you are able! Helping hands are always needed. We have many special opportunities. I am looking forward to a wonderful and exciting year with you and your child!
