About Mrs. Olney
I love to read, which is one of my favorite parts about 1st grade, that so many friends are learning how to become super readers. This will be my fifth year teaching 1st grade. In May, I just finished my Reading Specialist Certification and Masters of Science in Reading Instruction.
I grew up in a Kansas and lived there until after college, when I moved to St. Louis. I love all things Kansas State University. In my free time, I love spending time outside and going for walks with my husband, daughter, and my two dogs.
