Welcome to 6th Grade! I am thrilled to begin another exciting new year at Olson. I can't wait to meet all my new students virtually and in person and welcome those back that I know from all the activities I have chaperoned as Levi's mom!
A little about me! I taught 3rd grade Writing and Science and 6th grade Math for 4 years at Rountree Elementary in Allen. This will be my 9th year of teaching and my 7th year teaching 6th grade. I graduated from Baylor University ages ago with a business degree. Over the years, I developed such a passion for helping and teaching kids that I left my 16 year career in sales to become a teacher. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 23 years this year and we have 3 kids and our furry little girl...our Golden-Doodle named Kona. My kids are all Olson Otters! My daughter, Annabelle, headed off to college this August and is a freshman at the University of Arkansas. My oldest son, Caden, is a sophomore at Allen High School and I get the joy of sharing 6th grade this year with my youngest son, Levi.
We love living in Allen and I am so blessed to teach here too. My kids keep me busy with soccer, football, and basketball. We are an athletic family and LOVE to go to the beach. I have run 6 marathons and many 1/2 marathons. I am a breast cancer survivor and am blessed to be cancer free for 6 years! I am passionate about lots of things including: READING, running, eating healthy, yoga, traveling, cooking, the Dallas Cowboys, Baylor and my students! I am so blessed to be teaching in Allen at such a great school. I can't wait to see what my 6th graders and I discover on our journey this year. Please contact me throughout the year if you have any questions or concerns!
