Osgood Elementary | 1st Grade
My name is Caitlyn Olson. I am originally from Hershey and graduated from Hershey High School. I received my bachelor’s degree from the University of Nebraska at Kearney in Early Childhood Unified and Elementary education.
I spend most of my time outside of school with my family. I have a new nephew whom I love to spoil. My parents live in the North Platte area. I also have two sisters and a brother in law. One of my sisters also lives in the area and my other sister is a student at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln.
I am a first grade teacher at Osgood Elementary and have been since the fall of 2015. Before coming to North Platte, I taught a semester as a 5th and 6th grade teacher at Arthur County Public Schools.
As a first grade teacher I have such a passion for helping children learn to read. I love watching students as they develop their reading skills and go from reading three word pages to whole chapter books in just one year. Teaching is such a rewarding profession and I am excited to continue my career here at North Platte Public Schools. Go bulldogs!
