Third Grade Teacher
Degrees and Certifications:
Hi, my name is Jody O’Driscoll. I was born and raised in Grand Forks, North Dakota, but I’ve been in Colorado Springs over half my life and consider it my home.
My husband and I have been together for over 30 years and have two beautiful daughters, Peyton and Allison. Peyton is a nurse in Minnesota and Allison will be starting graduate school in the fall to become a Physician Assistant. I have been very blessed with an amazing family.
I received my Bachelor’s Degree from UCCS and my teacher's licensure from Regis University. I have taught for 17 years, nearly all of those in 3rd grade. My passion has always been to prepare all students for life, no matter where it might take them. Mark Twain once said, “The two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why.” I found I was born to teach and now my motivation is to help students find their calling based on their individual passions, skills and talents.
When I’m not teaching, I love being outdoors and traveling. My husband and I enjoy walking and hiking with our two dogs. I also enjoy bike riding and anything else that allows me to enjoy God’s beautiful creations.
