Alyssa Olsson, Art Teacher

Ms. Olsson attended the University of Wisconsin River Falls.

Why did you pursue the career path you have chosen? At first, I wanted to be a high school English teacher because I really like to read. When I went to college, I fell in love with my ceramics class and decided to get my degree in Art Education instead!

What did you do before coming to NPHS? I spent 4 years at TCU teaching K-12 Art.

What have you enjoyed most about NPHS or what do you most look forward to here? I graduated from NPHS so it feels good to come back! I love working with my former teachers. I also love getting to focus on ceramics. It’s my favorite medium, and I love sharing it with all of you!

If you could sit next to anyone on an airplane, who would it be and why? A cute dog! For obvious reasons.

If you had a warning label, what would yours say? WARNING: Will buy plants, even though there isn’t any room in her house for more plants.
