Dana Olson

I have always loved reading and interacting with people, which is why I decided to become a teacher. I grew up around the world, so I call many places my home, like Virginia, Singapore, Qatar, and Texas. I have a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and a Certificate in Children's Literature from the University of Pittsburgh and a Masters in Secondary Education from Texas State University. I taught English for three years in Austin, Texas before moving to Missouri. I am excited to be a part of the Waynesville community as an English teacher and a part of the library staff! When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and dog, being outside in the sun, and perfecting recipes that make people happy!
