Hello! My name is Ryan Olson and the 2021-2022 school year is my twelfth year at Anthony as a full-time teacher (I also student taught here in the fall of 2009 before being hired 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 tenth year teaching primarily 6th grade Minnesota Studies. For the second year in a row this year I will also have a 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 107 times (as of this writing--that number may well be higher by the time you read this). 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).

Welcome to my modest site.  Here you will find important information about my class. Follow the links to the right for contact info, my schedule, and a copy of the syllabii.
