Stacy Olson is an educator in the state of Texas. She has held a variety of positions as an educator over the past 15 years, but her most rewarding experiences have been when she is supporting teachers. Stacy has supported schools through the Texas Literacy Initiative Grant, as well as planned and implemented professional development for Teach for America novice teachers.
Her voice as an advocate for students with ADHD has been a result of working with neurologically diverse students, as well as multiple ADHD diagnoses within her family. Her son was diagnosed in preschool, soon followed by her husband and mother-in-law.
While Stacy is an educator, she is first a parent. When she isn’t teaching kindergarten, she spends her evenings and weekends teaming with her husband to empower their son to be a self-advocate for his own learning needs.
“The stories of self-doubt and shame that I hear in the memories of the ones I love drive me to make the classroom a better place for all learners-- my son included.” -Stacy Olson
