Principal's Bio

I have been an educator with MCPSS for 25 years. I taught at Leinkauf Elementary and Collier Elementary. After that, I served as Math Curriculum Specialist for MCPSS for 2 years. I then became assistant principal at Eichold-Mertz and Griggs and then transitioned to full time assistant principal at Griggs.

The O'Rourke community has the best parents, students, teachers, and businesses in Mobile. I am proud to be a part of such a wonderful family.

Principal's Corner

O'Rourke Elementary School's teachers are always excited about learning. They participate in on-going professional development in order to provide all students with opportunities to reach their potential.

Teachers have been trained in the Alabama Math, Science, and Technology Initiative, and the Alabama Reading Initiative. In addition, all teachers have participated in Reading Renaissance training. In fact, O'Rourke Elementary School has met the criteria to receive recognition as a Reading Renaissance Master School.

At O'Rourke Elementary School we are proud of our community of parents, students, teachers, faculty, and partners. Together, we strive to provide a positive atmosphere conducive to learning not only academic skills, but also life-long skills that will make us better citizens capable of living and working together.
