        Hello second graders and parents!  My name is Sharla Gant and I am excited about a fantastic year in second grade. I have been teaching for 22 years and this is my ninth year at Olson. I have two sons. Caleb is a college sophomore attending Missouri University of Science & Technology and Carson is a junior at Allen High School. They were both Olson Otters too! My husband, Lance, and I have been married for 22 years.  I enjoy reading, being outdoors, traveling, and attending our sons' activities.  I choose to teach because I want to help kids learn to be the best they can be, enjoy learning, and help prepare them to be the "good" in the world. Raising children is hard and I am happy to be a part of your journey. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Together we can help each child become the best they can be!
