Hi, my name is Danita Jones. I have worked as a Special Education EA and as a Kindergarten teacher. I grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I received my B.A. degree in Elementary Education from North Central University. Prior to coming to Excell I taught preschool for almost two years. For fun, I enjoy trying new foods, shopping, reading, Zumba, and spending time with family and friends. I am very excited to be working with the smart, and talented students at Excell Academy this year.
Welcome to Sixth Grade!
My name is Amber Olson and I am thrilled to be back for another exciting year at Excell Academy. I am originally from Minnesota, but have lived and taught in many other states including Iowa, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, and Hawai’i. I went to college at Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa where I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and Music. I am grateful to have a job where I get to learn something new each day.
