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 and this will be the first year I don't have one of my own kiddos at Olson!
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 10th year of teaching and my 8th 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 24 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, is a sophomore at the University of Arkansas. My oldest son, Caden, is a junior at Allen High School and play varsity football for AHS. My youngest son, Levi, is headed into his first year of middle school at Curtis to play football and basketball.
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 7 years! I am passionate about lots of things including: READING, running, eating healthy, yoga, traveling, cooking, the Dallas Cowboys, Baylor, the Arkansas Razorbacks 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!
