Mr. Kevin O'Brien

I am a Colorado Native, born and raised. I was a student in Jeffco Public Schools my entire childhood until I graduated from Chatfield Senior High School. For college I decided to travel to the Inland North West to attend Gonzaga University (GO ZAGS!!!). While I was there, I pursued a degree in Sociology. Although I loved my time at GU, I deeply missed my home and the Rocky Mountains, so I returned to the Denver Metro Area after graduation. This will be my 4th year teaching at PVHS, including my residency year where I learned to be an effective teacher under the guidance of some of the many incredible teachers in this school. After my residency, the school asked me to return as a full time English teacher, and I am proud to say that I am now a Thunder Hawk. As an English teacher, I believe it is not only my job to teach students to be great writers, readers, and communicators, but to also be active and influential members of society.

All of my students have access to my Google Classroom page, which is the best place to find helpful information regarding my class (i.e. assignments, due dates, helpful tools, missing assignments etc.) My email is Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you may have.
