Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Madison Olson. I graduated from Maize High School in 2016. After high school, I attended Butler Community College for my Associate and Emporia State University via the B.E.S.T Program for my Bachelors. I am getting ready to start my 3rd year of teaching. I have previously taught 1st and 2nd Grade STEAM at Colwich Elementary and Kindergarten at Haven Grade School. I became a teacher because I was a student that was slower to pick up reading and math concepts and as I got older always felt like I had a dislike for school because I never felt like I got the help I needed. My why for teaching is to help every student make academic and personal growth and to show them that I am there to support them inside and outside of school! I am excited to join the Payne family in 4th grade and can’t wait to see all the students grow.
I have lived in Wichita my whole life and still currently live there. I have one furry baby named Shadow who is a Bombay cat. After school I like to go out to eat, walk at the park, watch movies, and cook! My favorite snacks are chocolate (of any kind) and my favorite drink is Pepsi or iced coffee.
I cannot wait to meet you and start the school year!
