Hillary O’Connell loves teaching 1st grade at MPE. She teaches upstairs in the “lemon” room and knows this year is going to be the ZEST! This is Mrs. O’Connell’s 14th year teaching 1st grade, and her 4th in Mahomet. She will begin the year in October because she and her husband just welcomed a baby girl, Poppy, to their family. They have three other children: Emerie (11), Theo (4), and Lincoln (2).  
You may see the O’Connells out an about cheering on the Illini at sporting events, playing outside, riding bikes, or shopping at Target. 

Mrs. O’Connell is excited to share her awesome class with Mrs. Hewitt and enjoy another year as a Bulldog.
