Mrs. Amie O'Kane

My name is Amie O'Kane and I will be teaching 8th grade ELA at PSJ Middle School this year.  I was born in South Carolina but moved to Washington when I was 10 years old!  Once upon a time, I attended PSJ Middle School and was a cheerleader for the mighty Demons!  I graduated from Washington High School and went on to East Carolina University where I received my degree in Elementary Education and my K-12 reading certification.  I also received my master's in teaching and learning.  I have spent time in the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade classroom teaching Language Arts.  For the past 5 years, I have served as Beaufort County Schools MTSS Coordinator.  I'm excited for the opportunity to get back into the classroom and work with students!  Teaching literacy and building relationships with students is my passion.  I am also looking forward to being at the school where two of my three children will be!  My oldest son will be an 8th grader at PSJ and my younger son will be in 6th grade.  My daughter will be across the street as a 4th grader at JSS.  I am excited about taking all of the experiences I've had over my past 16 years in education and pouring them into my students and PSJ family!
