Ms. Laura Olson
Hello! My name is Laura Olson and I am in my 5th year teaching at Wharton High School. Each year I have taught mostly seniors and some freshmen, and that has remained the same this year. I teach English 1 and AP Literature and Composition.
I love to read, but I understand that the majority of my students do not. My goals are to prepare your student for their next step--whether that is the STAAR EOC and English 2 or graduation and college/career--and help them to become literate citizens.
1st Period-English 1
3rd Period-AP Literature & Composition
4th Period-ROAR English 4
5th Period-English 1
7th Period-AP Literature & Composition
8th Period-English 1
Tutorials are available upon request.
I am at school by 7:15 (usually earlier) each morning, and stay until 4:00 (unless there is a meeting of some sort) each afternoon.
