Mrs. Tammy Olsen

My name is Tammy Olsen, and I am a 4th grade teacher at Canyon Ranch Elementary. I am entering my 15th year of teaching and am excited to be engaged with all of my learners inside and outside of my classroom. I received my Bachelor's Degree at the University of Texas in Arlington in 2005. I began teaching 1st grade for Duncanville ISD in 2006. I have taught 4 years of 1st grade, 7 years of 3rd grade, and 3 years of 4th grade. I have been teaching for Coppell ISD for the past 5 years!

I grew up in South Texas near the Rio Grande Valley. I actually grew up on the King Ranch, one of the largest ranches in the world. The ranch was a very unique place to grow up. Just to get to school, I had to take an hour and a half bus ride each day with 3 bus changes. 

Currently I live in Farmers Branch with my husband Walter and my two daughters Reese, age 12, and Quinn, age 10. I also have two mixed breed labradors retrievers named Libby and Luke. As a family, we love to spend weekends at our lake house in east Texas as well as travel to new places just to explore.

In my spare time, I love to read. I actually love to read young adult novels because previewing them for my learners is very important. I just recently read the book, A Long Pitch from Home. This was a great novel for 4th graders that I would like my learners to read this year. Books happen to be my favorite thing in the world. I could sit at Barnes and Noble for hours at a time just to find the best novels and picture books for my learners.

Teaching, for me, is a way of life. I love going the extra mile to get my learners where they need to be. I will challenge all of my learners and provide very high expectations for everyone in my class and House. I can assure you that your child will have a very positive experience in my classroom this year!
