Grade 3&4 - Madeleine Olson


Welcome to Ms. Olson’s 3rd and 4th-grade classroom! I am so excited that you are here! This is my second year being a classroom teacher. I grew up in Massachusetts and moved to Vermont about three years ago. Two years ago I was a para-educator in South Burlington and the director for Shrek the Musical Jr. 

In my spare time I love to sing, go to the gym or play with my bearded dragon Bertie or my new cat Atticus!

I hope to foster a love for learning and a safe community within the classroom. As someone who had an IEP growing up and struggled in school, I want students to know they have a safe place in my classroom. My goal is to create a place where students want to come to each and every day.
