Welcome to Olson! I am very excited to be your child's 5th grade teacher. My husband Ray and I just celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary this summer and have lived in Allen for 31 years. This will be my 17th year of teaching. Previously, I spent several years at home with my three amazing children Joshua, Carah, and Mikaela. In addition my husband and I have two precious granddaughters Sadie and Sutton.
Before returning to work full time, I worked part time as a contracted ELA and Math tutor for Allen ISD with students in grades 3rd through 6th. I've been a part of the teaching staff at Olson since 2009 when it first opened. For the first seven years here, I taught 4th grade Reading, Writing, and SS. During the next two years, I taught 3rd grade. After that I taught 6th grade ELA and World Cultures for two years. Last year I moved to 5th grade where I taught 5th Grade ELA and US History. This year I'm looking forward to teaching ELA on our 5th grade team.
My family and I love to travel to new places and are always looking forward to the many new adventures that await us. Some of our most favorite trips include Cancun, London, France, and Glacier Park, Montana,
Please contact me through my school email or Remind if you ever have any questions. I look forward to partnering with you to build upon your child's continued success in school.
