Kimberly Olsen

I have taught 5th grade for 19 years at Wetumpka Middle School, and I love teaching students! I especially enjoy science because I love experimenting, and watching students get excited about learning new things! 

I have been married for 43 years, and I have 3 grown children (Andrew, Amber and Adam). I also have 3 granddaughters (Isabelle, Elisabeth and Eilidh). I live in Eclectic, and have 1 dog  and 3 cats. I enjoy gardening, snorkeling and traveling. My favorite place to be is at the beach!

I earned both my Bachelor of Science and Master's Degrees from Auburn University, Montgomery.

Science- We are finishing "Parachutes", and also working on "Newton's 3 Laws of Motion and balanced and unbalanced forces. 

Students will have a daily grade on Tuesday, and a test on Thursday. Please have them study their journals from the Parachute entry to the end of their journal notes.

History- Chapter 5, " American Colonies"

On Monday, students will take a daily grade on lessons 1 and 2. They will have the Chapter 5 test on Friday. Students have been given an outline and a study guide. Please help your child study.
