​​​​​​​​Welcome to Mrs. O'H​ara's 8th/7th Grade ELA page!​

Thank you for visiting.  I'm Tracie O'Hara and I am looking forward to being your child's ELA teacher.  My expectations are high, but I have no doubt that if students work hard, they will succeed!

Teaching is my passion!  I have taught at Peoria Elementary School for 16 years.  I was married almost four years ago, but former students may remember me as Ms. R.  I love getting to teach siblings of prior students.  My kids are my kids forever.  

A little about me:  I love the beach and the ocean - some of my most memorable vacations have been to the coast and to the islands of Hawaii.  When you see my classroom, it will make sense.  My husband and I love reading, watching movies, traveling, and writing.  

Any questions?  Feel free to reach out to me.  My e-mail is: tohara@pusd11.net

You can also reach me by texting at: (480) 331-7797  Please include your name and your child's name and I will get back to you as quicklly as I can.

This site is a work in progress so check periodically for new updates.


This is Mrs. O'Hara's classroom website.  I will try to post announcements and information here.  Assignments and due dates will be posted on the calendar itself.  ​​
