Mrs. Michelle O'Rourke
I'm Mrs.Michelle O'Rourke, or "Mrs. O," and I teach Computer Repair & Service and Advanced Computer Repair at North Augusta High School. Our class operates as the Dell Student TechCrew, which repairs student laptops for NAHS and other NA schools. I also advise/coach the cyber teams at NAHS.
I'm originally from Dublin, Georgia and I have a B.S. degree in Communications & Marketing from Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, TN and M.A in Communications (Education emphasis) from Grand Canyon University. I spent nearly a decade with Dell, Inc managing corporate accounts & overseeing technology projects and device deployments for Fortune 500 companies. I also spent 15 years working with military families going through deployments in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom & Operation Enduring Freedom as an instructor for Army Family Team Building & as a Family Readiness Support leader & advisor.
After following the Army to several states, my family moved to the North Augusta area in 2015. My husband retired from the Army in 2021. We have 3 kids, including a NAHS Freshman. When I'm not at school, I'm most likely swinging through the CFA drive-thru on the way to/ from soccer or dance. We are very involved with our church, Midland Valley Community, and you'll often see me taking photos at NAHS games and at MVC Sports games and events.
