    "The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires." - William Arthur Ward

    Welcome to our World History class!!! 
    My name is Kristina O’Keefe and I was born in North Carolina to a military family that settled in New Jersey where I was raised. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher; I was blessed to recognize my calling early in life. I believe the ability to inspire students is priceless. I moved back to North Carolina where I achieved by Bachelor’s in Education and began my teaching career. I have been in the classroom for the last nine years and have loved every moment of it. I teach Social Studies and have enjoyed serving in other capacities in the school community life class advisor, NHS faculty advisor, Prom Coordinator and any position that puts me in direct contact with the students. I have previously taught World History, US History, Civics and Economics, AP American Government and AP Psychology. I have just finished my Master’s Degree in Political Science and am assessing my next educational accomplishment. On my spare time I enjoy reading, exercising and traveling. I value my family, friends, students and work ethic. I am very excited about my move to Hampton! 
    I hope all the students are thinking about sports and organizations you want to join. Here are the links to the three activities I will be working on this year !
