Welcome to Ms. Olsen's Teacher Page
My name is Lisa Olsen and I have been teaching here at Hesperian for 24 years now. When it comes to teaching, science is my passion, and I see it as a way to spark curiosity and enthusiasm in my students. I enjoy spending time and traveling with my family. My hobbies include reading, baking, archery, and singing in my church choir. I live in San Lorenzo with my husband, two cats, and an annoying parrot.
I love learning new things and sharing them with others.
I attended Cal State Hayward (now Cal State East Bay) both for my degree and teaching credential.
District Tools I Use
I take attendance using Aeries. You can stay on top of attendance through the Aeries Family Portal or Aeries App.
I use Aeries to generate report cards. Families can view report cards through the Aeries Family Portal.
I am using Google Classroom with my students. At this time I am not using it to assign work that would be graded, but as supplemental assignments in class that go along with our units, and as a place where our commonly used websites can be easily accessed. Students can and are encouraged to access our Classroom page from home.
