Welcome to 6th grade and Mrs. Weeks’ Surfers! I am thrilled to have you in my homeroom this year. I am looking forward to a fun-filled year of discovery and building our own community of readers, writers and cultural experts in ELA and Social Studies! Your journey exploring Science and Math will be with my partner teacher, Mrs. Sims!
Let me share a little about me. I have been teaching for 8 years this is my 5th year at Olson. I love being an Otter! I was in sales for 16 years before becoming a teacher. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 22 years this year and we have 3 kids (all Olson Otters) – a daughter who is a freshman at the University of Arkansas (Woo Pig!), a son who is a sophomore at AHS, and a 6th grade son many of you probably know. I am a breast cancer survivor, 6 years cancer free! Check out my presentation/video to learn more about me at this link Mrs. Weeks. Learn more about Mrs. Sims here!
