Mrs. Kelsey Olden


This is my 1st year teaching at West Middle School. I will be teaching 6th grade Science on Team Thunder. Before this year, I  taught 6th grade Science at Liberty Memorial Central Middle School for 10 years.

On a more personal note, I am from Lawrence and graduated high school from Lawrence High. I am married and we have two sons, Jake (6), and Trent (2.5). Both have red hair. We have two dogs, Izzie and Sasha, and a cat named Stella.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Oklahoma Wesleyan University and a Master's in Technology Enhanced Teaching from MidAmerica Nazarene University. My favorite subject in school has always been Science and I am excited to pass along my love of Science to your 6th graders.
