Sue Olson: State of Oregon Certified Elementary Teacher

I educated elementary students at all levels for over 26 years in the Beaverton School District and believe all children can learn and thrive. My expertise includes teaching all subject areas in the classroom, as well as targeted instruction for small groups and individual students. I designed and implemented remote lessons using SeeSaw and Google Classroom applications during Covid 19 school closures.

While not teaching young students, I enjoy spending time with my husband, children, grandson and my sweet Goldendoodle Oliver. I have a passion for figure skating, both watching and practicing. When not at the rink, I love taking walks and working in my garden.

Research on the Impacts of Covid School Closures

Learning loss from Covid school closures and distance learning is a concern for parents and teachers. Many students will need additional support and instruction to regain academic skills and make progress towards new learning goals. 

Gradient

"Projections suggest major academic impacts from COVID closures for students, especially in mathematics. Preliminary COVID slide estimates suggest students will return in fall 2020 with roughly 70% of the learning gains in reading relative to a typical school year. However, in mathematics, students are likely to show much smaller learning gains, returning with less than 50% of the learning gains and in some grades, nearly a full year behind what we would observe in normal conditions."- Dr. Megan Kuhfeld and Dr. Beth Tarasawa, NWEA
