Mrs. Heather O'Brien

This is my third year at Murphy Junior High School and my seventh year teaching! I teach 8th grade language arts. I went to Saint Xavier University in Chicago where I received my BA in Clinical Psychology. I later received my Master's degree in Special Education and graduated from the University of Saint Francis in 2011. I love working at Murphy Junior High and am excited for the 2017-2018 school year! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
