Katie O'Keefe

Welcome to Jackson Elementary! 

Hello! My name is Katie O’Keefe and I am one of the Special Education teachers at Jackson. This will be my second-year in District 205. Last year, I taught at both Jackson Elementary and Bryan Middle School.  I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a Bachelor of Science degree in Special Education in May 2018. I was born and raised in Orland Park, a southwest suburb of Chicago. I am the youngest of three siblings and the proud owner of a dog named Buster. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, cheering on the Chicago Cubs, and being outdoors. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
