About Mr. Olson


I am a graduate of Bloomington Jefferson High School and Gustavus Adolphus College, with a Bachelor's Degree in Biology. After spending 11 years in the private sector as a quality control chemist, I received my Master's Degree in Teacher Education from St. Thomas in 2004. This will be my 12th year as a science teacher, and 21th year working with students as a coach. My family resides in New Prague, just a few short miles south of our school and town. I have a beautiful wife named Allison, who teaches Social Studies at New Prague High School. I am also the proud father or 2 girls (ages 11 and 9) and one boy (age 6). I enjoy running, weightlifting, playing basketball, and camping with my family. In addition to teaching, I serve as an assistant coach of the football team and am a basketball referee of local high schools and colleges. I will be teaching 3 classes of biology and 3 class of physical science this year.
