Mrs. Kate Olsson - First Grade
I am Kate Olsson! This is my fourth year teaching at Hackberry! I believe that all students can learn and achieve at high levels. I value the relationships I build with families, students, and community members. I have wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember (technically since I was 7). I love every minute of what I do and I am excited to lead a team full of passionate educators! No matter if we are at home or in class, we are all a famiLE!
I am part of the Rêveur House!
I live in Prosper with my husband, Derik, and our yellow lab, Dillon. My husband and I are very active in our local church in Prosper where I serve as the Elementary Director! Other than teaching I love to spend my time at home with my family. We spend our time outside in our neighborhood or exploring the world. To date, I have been able to travel to over 20 countries! We are sports fans! I have been a lifelong Kansas City Chiefs fan! I love to experience life in different cultures and to learn as much as I can.
Education: I received my B.S in Interdisciplinary Studies with a minor in Education with ESL from TWU. I am currently working on my M.A. in School Counseling from Amberton University.
