Gail Olson


Role: Head Teacher and Preschool 1 Lead Teacher

Education: I earned my B.A. in English Literature in 1992 from Bethel and went back to Bethel in 1998 to get my teaching license in elementary education with a middle school endorsement in life science, language arts, and social studies.

I have also completed all of the coursework and national tests to add a pre-primary specialty to my teaching license.

Experience: I am currently the head teacher and the lead teacher in the Pre-1 classroom with the younger preschoolers at the King CDC.

Prior to coming to the King CDC, I had the opportunity to live and teach in both Japan (English as a second language to middle schoolers and high schoolers for three years) and Slovakia (English and life science to first through ninth graders for two and a half years). I have had the pleasure of teaching at the King CDC for the past four and a half years. 

For Fun: I love camping, hiking, biking, anything to do with the outdoors (especially animals, insects, and plants) and reading!
