Tiffany O’Brien received her undergraduate degree at East Stroudsburg University, where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Fine Arts & Music back in 2006.
Mrs. O’Brien soon after, began her career in education by teaching Pre-K at a private preschool in Bensalem, PA. Mrs. O’Brien was offered a middle school teaching position with Camelot Schools in 2008, where she began teaching Reading and Social Studies at an alternative school in Philadelphia.
After two years, she was recruited to teach at a Philadelphia Renaissance school that was being transitioned into a charter school. This was an amazing experience for her, being part of a team that completely revolutionized the school. Mrs. O’Brien was fortunate to help facilitate the transition of developing a positive climate and culture in the school, which was previously a failing school in the worst area of Philadelphia. Mrs. O’Brien taught in a self-contained 6th grade inclusion classroom at this charter school for three years.
During that time, she went back to school to receive her graduate degree online at Grand Canyon University, where she earned a Master’s degree in Special Education. In addition, Mrs. O’Brien participated in the Arkema Teacher Program, along with being part of a Curriculum Writing Team for a homeschool academy in the Lehigh Valley.
Soon after that, Mrs. O’Brien took a Special Education position at another charter school in Allentown, where she was a learning support teacher and coordinator for the Special Education Department. Mrs. O’Brien also taught in Autistic Support ESY programs for the local Intermediate Unit during her summers.
Mrs. O’Brien has been with EEACS since it’s inception and took courses to receive her principal certification within the first 2 years the school opened. She currently holds her level 2 certification in both Elementary and Special Education, as well as her K-12 Principal certification. Mrs. O’Brien takes on the role as the Chief Academic Officer here at Executive Education Academy and loves being able to support students, staff, and families each day.
