Mrs. Olivia Christensen
Hello and welcome to 1st grade!!! I am so excited to have an awesome year with your children. This is my first year at Chapin Elementary and I can't wait to get the year started!
I have experience as a preschool inclusion teacher for 2 1/2 years and a kindergarten teacher for 6 years. This is my 9th year teaching and my 1st year as a first grade teacher. I received my B.A in Experimental Psychology from the University of South Carolina. Go Gamecocks!!!! I then persued my Masters in Early Childhood Education from Converse College in Spartanburg, SC. My husband and I are celebrating 10 years this December and we have 2 beautiful children. Palmer will be 7 in December and will be in 1st grade as well this year and our daughter Ava will be turing 4 in September. We also have a white furry baby, Maddy, who is a terrier/australian sheperd who just turned 13.
I enjoy coffee, college football, Fall, candles, Italian food, chocolate, and spending time with my family and friends! I believe that any child has the ability to learn and can acheive anything they put their mind to and I can not wait to teach your children. I am so excited for a "fabulous first" grade year! :)
