Mrs. O'Keefe was born in South Africa and moved to America when she was eight. She knew at an early age that art was one of her passions. She attended the University of North Texas to pursue her art degree. After graduating from college, she taught art at the high school level for two years.
Students in grades Kindergarten through 5th learn about art through a comprehensive curriculum that involves higher order thinking.
Mrs. O'Keefe and her students portray their studies during the year throughout the halls and classrooms at Northlake this year.
