George R. Martin Elementary School Seekonk, Massachusetts
Hello! I’m Ms. Olean from Martin School in Seekonk, MA. I grew up in Seekonk and attended Martin school from first grade to fifth and am so very excited to be back home! I went to Rhode Island College for Psychology and Fine Arts. After graduating I worked as a graphic designer in New York for a few years. I decided to return to Massachusetts and get my Masters of Education in Elementary Ed. While in grad school I worked as an interior painter for my dad (one of the most fun jobs besides teaching). After graduating I worked in New Bedford then was so lucky to receive a position in Seekonk in first grade. I am blessed to have on my team three veteran teachers to help me acclimate to first grade. My classroom is very focused on social emotional development and includes flexible seating. I believe students should feel safe in their environment in order to succeed and reach their full potential. Working with students on projects and history lessons are the highlights of my day. Outside of school my hobbies include skateboarding, rock climbing, playing guitar, and doing yoga.
