Mrs. Colleen O'Shaughnessy

Welcome to 4th grade! This is my 30th year at Rutledge Hall. I am a graduate of Loyola University of Chicago where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I have also earned a Master of Education from National-Louis University. I have teaching endorsements in English as a second language, language arts, and social science, as well as an endorsement as a Learning Behavior Specialist.


My time away from school is spent with my husband, Kevin, and our three children: Danny who is a freshman at U of I; Kate, who is a junior; and Clare, who is in 8th grade. 


It is a privilege and an honor to be your child’s teacher. If you ever have any questions or concerns regarding your child, please do not hesitate to contact me via email through the District website.
