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.
