Mrs. Lydia O'Keefe-Grady

Born and raised in Orange County, California, I spent most of my lifetime living in Southern California soaking up the beautiful sunshine. I have three adult children (David, Allison & Ashley) and three grandchildren (Emma, Jonathan & Sydney). I attended Norco College and earned an AA in Hummanities & Philosophy along with ceritification in early childhood studies. In 2013, I earned my BA at California State University San Bernardino and completed my teaching credientials for special education grades k-12.  My credentials include specialized authorization to teach students with autism and English language learners. I completed my college career with a Master's degree as MA- Education Specialist: special education option.

My husband Ian and I moved to Raleigh, North Carolina in July 2015 to be closer to our granchildren. We currently have 3 dogs, but don't be suprised if we end up adopting more! We love all animals, along with the beauiful outdoors that we found in North Carolina.
