About Ms. "O" Pic: O'Loughlin Castle-Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare, Ireland
A Little About Me...
Hi, my name is Caitlyn O'Loughlin (pronounced O-Lock-Lin), and yes, I am Irish! I am a second generation American, and I recently took a trip to my grandfather's home in Ireland. The photos on this website tell that story! I have been living in Colorado for 3 years. I moved here from Texas to be near family, the mountains, and cooler weather. Although, I will always remain a Texan at heart. I love being a teacher, and I believe that education is a partnership between families and educators. I graduated from the University of Texas in Arlington with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies and a Minor in Spanish, and then went on to earn my Masters in Education from Dallas Theological Seminary. I taught first grade for two years in Texas before moving to Colorado, and I have been teaching first grade at Westgate since I moved here in 2013. I am lucky to be a part of such a wonderful first grade team of teachers. When I am not working I enjoy hiking, skiing, spending time with loved ones, and doing Animal Assisted Therapy with my giant dog, Clive, who is named after my favorite author, C.S. Lewis. I am so excited to partner with you in your child's education this year!
Clive is a 3 year old Irish Wolfhound. He weighs 160 lbs. and enjoys sleeping, eating, playing, helping others, and going on walks.
