Hi, my name is Emily Olson.  I am excited to be your child's teacher this year.  Teaching kindergarten is my dream job!  The 2016-2017 school year will be my second year at Indepenence.   Previously, I taught kindergarten in the Elk River School District.  

I graduated from Bemidji State University in 2011 with a degree in Elementary Education.  I completed my K-12 Reading Licensure coursework through Minnesota State University-Mankato in 2014.

 I live in Elk River and enjoy spending time with friends and family in my free time.  Some of my favorite things to do include traveling, visiting places that are full of history, going for walks, spending time outside espcially by a lake in the summertime,  photographing nature and drinking coffee!  

Some of my favorites include:

Food: Chili 

Color: Purple

Animal: Elephant

Sport: Minnesota Twins

Book: The Giving Tree

 I look forward to learning and growing together as a kindergarten family this year!!
