Of the Week Student of the Week

Miss O’Keeffe

Written by Christine Gill

This is a first time I have chosen a teacher for “student” of the week. The teacher that is breaking ground with our articles is the lovely four-year teacher Miss O’Keeffe. She has always been a favorite among the student body with her out-going and funny personality. I hope you enjoy this special edition of the student of the week

  1. Describe your college experiences in one word.

When I asked this question, Miss O’Keefe looked up a synonym for the word, and she came up with the scholarly word phantasmagorical (memorable).

  1. What is your favorite grade in the school?

I do not have any favorite grades they are all in my eyes on the same level of love.

  1. Tell us about your discipline philosophy.

“Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind always.”

  1. As this being your fourth year of teaching in general, what is the craziest thing you have seen a student do?

One of the funniest things I have seen is when Kostas before the basketball game grabbed the mic and started doing standup comedy roasting everyone and making jokes.

  1. How long do you see yourself working at Dominican?

Until my name is on the gym floor. 

  1. What is something that you can cook really well?

I make really good overnight apple oatmeal and I make fantastic high protein whole wheat high fiber waffles from scratch.

  1. What is easiest thing that you most often screw up?

For as long as I have had car I can still never fill up my tires with air; I always deflate them.

  1. What is the most exciting thing you have planned for the summer?

I am running the Brewers’ half marathon.

  1. Any parting words?

No drugs, no alcohol, no sugar.
