Ryan Olson

Welcome to our class page! This is my ninth year teaching, all at Del Rey Woods! I was born in Illinois, but moved to San Diego, California when I was just 1 year old. I have three brothers: one lives in Ohio, one in Los Angeles, and one in San Diego, where my mom also lives. When I was a freshman in high school, I moved to the Philippines where I lived for two years. In 1990, I graduated with a Psychology degree from San Diego State University. Go Aztecs! The following year I was married and now have four children. I moved to the Monterey Peninsula in 1994 when my youngest son was just 2 years old. In 2002, I graduated from CSUMB with a teaching credential. Go Otters! I love teaching at Del Rey Woods. We have an awesome staff!

Favorite subject/thing to teach?

I enjoy teaching math. I also like teaching through games, such as Boggle, and using playing cards.

Most memorable experience at Del Rey Woods

My most memorable experience was when we had an actual earthquake at Del Rey Woods. No drill! All the students did just as they were supposed to do.

Favorite book?

The Time Machine, by H.G. Wells
