Ms. Vicki Olson
Welcome to Harelson Elementary School. I love being at Harelson and being part of the Harelson Community. Being a parent is my proudest accomplishment. I have two grown daughters, their spouses and have one granddaughter. Keeping in touch with former students and their parents is a passion of mine. I believe that every child can learn on their own time line. Providing opportunities for them to learn is what I enjoy doing. I have enjoyed many career challenges during my tenure in Education. I taught at Keeling Elementary School (1st grade for eight years), moved to our district office and worked for the Career Ladder Pay for Performance for 5 years including district training on effective teaching methods, I taught language arts methods courses and the University of Arizona and supervised student teachers for two years and have taught at Harelson Elementary School for the past six years. Receiving the Distinguished Service award from our District was a humbling experience for me. One teacher from our district has been selected each school month for the past two years. I am honored to be a member of this elite group.
