Christie Olson was nominated for Baymonte’s Above and Beyond Award! This award recognizes teachers and staff who consistently go above and beyond their normal job expectations to ensure students are well cared for and receive a high-quality education. We were so eager to give her this award due to all of her hard work and amazing contributions to the school. Here are some of the great things said about Mrs. Olson:
“Christie goes above and beyond in so many ways, but something specific is that she stays after school two days a week to help my fourth grade son in certain subjects that are challenging for him. This cuts into her free time when she could go home and put her feet up! I am always truly grateful for the time she gives to him to make him not just a more successful student, but a more confident person. We feel very blessed and know how lucky we are. Some teachers teach not just from the head, but from the heart. That is Christie Olson.”
“Mrs. Olson goes above and beyond in all aspects of her life. She is selfless and sacrifices her time and energy to help her students beyond school hours. Most afternoons, you can see her tutoring kids in her room, as well as helping mentor fellow teachers. She will bend over backward to help another person out, even if it means giving up her own time and moving around her schedule. She cares deeply for every single person. She will do whatever she can to help her students master the skills and concepts she is teaching at that time. Mrs. Olson is extremely creative and comes up with creative songs and videos to help her students memorize different grammar concepts, Bible verses, etc. She wants to bring out the best in each student and is always looking for creative ways to make the curriculum fun and exciting. She wears so many hats on campus and spends countless hours working, and reworking, different schedules to help us all stay on campus safely. She is a wonderful example of Jesus’ love and kindness towards those around her. She prays for each child and for how to best meet them where they are.”
Thank you, Mrs. Olson. We love and appreciate you!
