Andy Olson - Outstanding Teacher!

Andy Olson - Outstanding Teacher!
Andy Olson, Technology Integrationist, at Hermantown Elementary is a team player for ALL students.  Recently, he helped brainstorm options for accessibility in Seesaw, for a student who is visually impaired.  He listened carefully to the concerns, talked about possible ideas, which some are going to be tried, and continued to brainstorm others when ideas didn't work.  He expressed responsibility for ensuring distance learning access for ALL students at Hermantown Elementary school.

Andy has worked in the district for 8 years now. He has taught 1st Grade for six years, 2nd Grade for one year and now he's the PreK - 4th grade Elementary Technology Integrationist. His favorite part of teaching is the kids. Being around and working with kids is what motivates him to keep pushing himself to be a better educator. Great peers and staff help too! He's a husband (Jenny Olson: teacher at Bayview Elem) and father of two great kids: Ella (5), Drew (3). His family loves doing anything outdoors such as fishing, hunting, hiking, snowshoeing, or taking their dog Mauer for walks.

Congratulations Andy Olson!
