About Mrs. O'Sullivan:

Welcome!  I am the 6th grade Science teacher.  I grew up 
in Chicago and attended St. Scholastica High School.  I graduated college at 
DePaul University. I have a master's degree in Science Education and Teacher 
Leadership. I am also a National Board Certified teacher in Early Adolescence 
Science.  This will be my 11th year teaching at Armstrong and 13th year overall. 
Wow, time flies! I am married to a wonderful husband and have a very loving 
dog.I also have a son born April 1, 2014. He is the love of my life.  
I also love teaching science!  Every year I learn more and more about the 
fascinating planet we live on. I hope you will enjoy it too.  Please feel free 
to e-mail me with questions or concerns at mjkollar@cps.edu.

Mission For The Class

I believe in order to learn science, we must "do" science.  We will have 
lots of opportunities to work hands-on with the topics we are learning. We will 
become scientifically literate. I hope that many of you will pursue a career in 
science and then come back to guest teach a class. I believe students, teachers, 
and parents all need to work together to achieve success in your education. As 
the saying goes, "A mind is a terrible thing to waste." I am here to teach you 
and I expect you to be in the classroom ready and prepared to learn everyday.
