Early Childhood Teacher
Hello! My name is Olivia, the kids will call me Ms. Olivia. I married my High School sweetheart in 2015. We have one very spoiled tabby cat named Jameson. I love teaching young minds and have found a new passion in Special Education. I love sweets, carbs, and coffee. I love to read a good fantasy/science fiction novel and binge watch Netflix during my spare time. I love musicals and plays. I played the cello for 7 years growing up and still enjoy listening to classical music to decompress. I love to be silly and lighthearted and take great pride in my work.
I graduated from SIUE with my degree in Early Childhood with Special Education Approval. I student taught in both Preschool and Second Grade at Goshen Elementary in Edwardsville, IL.
I worked in Virginia at a private childcare center for one year as the Older Fours assistant.
I then worked in O’Fallon at La Petite Academy for two years as the Lead PreK Teacher.
