Hello! I am Ms. Alicia Olson. I've been teaching art in the Anoka-Hennepin School District since 2004 and am currently working at Jackson Middle School.
I completed my undergraduate degree in Art Education at St. Cloud State Univerity, and master's degree in Teaching and Learning from St. Mary's University. In addition to teaching sixth and seventh graders, I have created sets for school musicals, and been involved in coaching various after school sports. I am also the lead of the JMS Arts and Academic Expo which happens the first Wednesday in May every year. Feel free to email me with questions, concerns, or volunteer oppertunities regarding this event.
I have included links to musical, cross country, girls soccer, and Arts and Academic Expo photos, as well as samples of beautiful student work on the left of this page. Enjoy...
