Welcome! My name is Jamie Olson, and I have been teaching Kindergarten at The Academy since 2013. My Elementary Education degree was obtained from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa where I was captain of the Cross-Country and Track & Field teams. I have previously taught Pre-K, 1st through 3rd grade, and was a Before & After School Program Director.
Some special things that we do in my classroom include one-on-one time with the teacher, mystery readers (parents surprising students), entire class incentives, and celebrating individual and community success. I love integrating our Wildcat Core Values into our day. Teaching these important traits is one area that inspires me as an educator. Another is the sense of community cultivated by working with parents to create the best learning outcomes for the students. I love preparing five and six years olds to become life long learners. Kindergarten is a great place to be!
