My name is Therese O'Dea, and I am a K-5 adapted curriculum instructor in New Kent County. I have worked for New Kent County Public Schools for 9 years, and I have served both as a head general education teacher as well as an extended school year and homebound instructor. I majored in Elementary Education at William and Mary and received my M.Ed. in Special Education from Old Dominion University. I am currently pursuing my Ed.D. in Leadership at Virginia Commonwealth University.
