I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  My name is ... 

Miss Caitlyn Olsen

I am so excited to be your child’s 8th grade special services teacher.

This is my first-year teaching here at Spring Hill Middle School and I am very excited to be working in this community. Before my time at Spring Hill Middle School, I have had experiences in teaching both English language arts at middle school and high school levels, as well as special services. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in secondary education for English language arts from Kansas State University. I am certified in both secondary English language arts and k-12 special education. Outside of teaching I enjoy painting, reading, hiking, biking, walking, and spending time with family!

Throughout the year, it is important to have a strong parent-teacher relationship.  If at any time you have any questions or concerns please contact me.  You can email me at or call me at (913) 592-7288 Ext. 7434.

Also, please utilize skyward, google calendar, and google classrooms. All of these can be used as resources to see what your child has for assignments.

I am thrilled to be starting on this year’s journey with your children!  I look forward to watching them learn, grow and have a fantastic time in 8th grade!
