Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Olmstead



I will be your teacher for the 1st and second graders here in Ambler.  I am very excited to get the year started!  I have been teaching for 34 years, and have taught in four different school districts in California before moving up here. I earned my Bachelors Degree from Western Washington University, and my Master’s Degree in Technology from Grand Canyon University. I love technology! One of the reasons I chose the Northwest Arctic Borough School District was because they really do have some great technology here.


I have one son, who is 28 years old, and lives in Bellingham, Washington. My parents and brothers live in the Coachella Valley in California.  That is where my son and I moved from. After 17 years in the desert we are looking forward to a cooler location. Last week my mom said the temperature reached 118 It will be fun communicating with my son about the weather.


I really love your village. Everyone is so nice. I’m looking forward to a very exciting and productive year.
