Ms. Olson, Grade 3

Hello! My name is Ms. Polly Olson. This will be my sixth year teaching at Jenny Lind, my fourth year in 3rd Grade.


I grew up in Detroit Lakes, MN and graduated with a K-6 Elementary license from St. Cloud State University in 2012.


I love spending time hunting and exploring the outdoors and share my passion for outdoor education with my students. When I am not at school teaching, I coach volleyball at Mounds View High School. I work to integrate my love for sports by making learning active and engaging.


I am trained in and am a firm believer in Responsive Classroom and building a community between my students. I incorporate academic choice to promote engagement in learning and use logical consequences when a mistake is made. I truly believe that EVERY STUDENT WANTS TO LEARN and strive to motivate each of my students to believe that they are capable of learning and can accomplish their goals.
