Position at OWL: Math Teacher, Computer Science Teacher, Crew Leader, EDL Coordinator
My name is Clara Olson.
I was born and raised in Saint Paul, MN. I am a product of Saint Paul Public Schools, and I graduated from Saint Paul Central High School. I went to Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. During my time at Luther I majored in Physics and Mathematics, minoring in Secondary Education. In addition to studying, I spent 4 years playing viola in the Symphony Orchestra. I spend my summers working with YMCA Camp Foster located in Spirit Lake, IA, working roles from being a counselor, to working in the kitchen, as well as assisting in the office.
I started teaching at Open World Learning Community in January 2014. I started out as a Science teacher and quickly switched over to the dark side of mathematics. I enjoy solving problems for fun and doing calculations. I especially enjoy bantering with my co-workers Tom, Damon, and Patty and trying to solve problems faster than they do.
In my spare time, I continue to play Viola with the Saint Paul Civic Symphony. Other hobbies I have are gardening copious amounts of vegetables and woodworking.
