O'Hara Staffing Update for the 2018-19 School Year
It is that time of year when we begin working on staffing for the upcoming school year. Sadly, we have three teachers that are leaving us. Miss Pusateri (3rd grade) will be leaving us and moving to Arizona. Ms. Halter (2nd grade) will be leaving us and moving back to Central Oregon.  Señora  Vega will also be leaving us and moving back to Mexico. We wish these three amazing ladies all the best as they move to the next chapter in their lives. We are grateful for their time at O'Hara and the impact they have had on their students. 

We are very happy to announce that we have already filled the 2nd grade opening with one of our very own! Mrs. Madison Smith, who has been an instructional assistant with us for the last several years, has recently completed her Masters in Teaching and will be our new 2nd grade teacher. Mrs. Smith is an O'Hara alum. We have posted the 3rd grade opening as well as the opening for a Spanish teacher, grades 4-8. These are both full time positions. If you know of anyone who is qualified and wishes to apply, please have them contact Mrs. Conway
