About Me
Temperance River State Park

Hello all! My name is Aviva Olsen, but I prefer to be called by my maiden name Ms.G-K.  I will be your 7th grade science teacher this year!  I started teaching at Sanford in 2012.  I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Minnesota State University, Mankato (MSU) with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and a concentration in Middle School Science--GO MAVERICKS!  Then in 2018, I earned my Master's Degree in Youth Developement Leadership from the University of Minnesota--GO GOPHERS!  I strongly believe in the philoshphy of teaching the whole student.  I might be your student's science teacher, but I want them to learn organization, kindness and responsiblity in my class in addition to science content.

In my spare time, I enjoy being outside canoeing or kayaking, playing volleyball or gardening.  I love the outdoors and am SO excited to go to Eagle Bluff this March!

 My preferred method of contact is through my MPS email (aviva.olsen@mpls.k12.mn.us), but I am here for you! Never hesitate to call, email or come to Sanford in person.
