Cathy O'Donnell has been a teacher in Jeffco for 17 years, although this is her 32nd year of teaching. She has been fortunate to teach in diverse settings such as a school for kids living in Denver area shelters; Craig Hospital for adolescents with brain and spinal cord injuries, as well as teaching in an adolescent psychiatric hospital.

Cathy enjoys reading, spending time with family and friends and the outdoors. She is a runner and coached cross-country runners for many years. She continues to train others as well as participate in run events all year.


Ms. Pallai moved to Colorado from the north suburbs of Chicago in 1989. She moved back to that area for one semester in 1993, and quickly returned to Colorado and has called it her home ever since! She is the proud parent of three amazing children (24, 14, and 13). Currently, Ms. Pallai lives in Evergreen where she enjoys spending quality time with her children, watching sunrises and sunsets from her deck, and traveling whenever she is afforded the opportunity. She is an avid reader, and has the best job in the world as a Learning Specialist!
