Hello! My name is Ryan Olson and the 2020-2021 school year is my eleventh year at Anthony as a full-time teacher (I also student taught here in the fall of 2009 before being hired on full time). I taught 6th grade as a student teacher before teaching 7th and 8th grade in my first two years on the full-time staff. This is my ninth year teaching mainly 6th grade Minnesota Studies. This year I also have single section of 7th grade U.S. studies.

I am a proud graduate of the University of Minnesota, with two degrees: a B.A. in History with a Political Science minor and a Social Studies M.Ed. A Minneapolis resident, my time outside of school (in normal times) revolves around listening to music and seeing live music. I'm a big Deadhead and I've seen Phish 101 times and have 18 shows on the calendar for the summer of 2021 (fingers crossed). I'm also a huge baseball fan and follow the Twins to an unhealthy level. Other interests include staying on top of the news (HARD COPIES of newspapers--online newspapers are NOT my favorite), walking and biking and listening to podcasts and baseball, and traveling extensively (usually to see Phish or other bands--again, in normal times).

Welcome to my modest site.  Here you will find important information about my classes. Follow the links to the right for contact info, my schedule, and a copy of the syllabii. With us starting the year in distance learning all assignments can be found on my Google Classroom.
