Our November Griffin of the Month is Terri Olsem. Ms. Olsem teaches Fine Arts and Service Learning at GOALS Learning Center. The staff commented, “From birthday celebrations to Thanksgiving, from Talk time to community field trips, Ms Olsem is constantly taking care of our minds, bodies, and spirits. She is perennially teaching and leading by example. She is patient and generous with her lessons to both students and staff. She will let us take our time with our projects but provides us motivation to complete them. Even though her time with us is limited, her work ethic is always plentiful, going the extra mile to allow us to experience our struggles and successes with unconditional encouragement. Like a griffin, Ms. Olsem is loyal and brave and a great representative of our school.”
Ms. Olsem constantly strives to bring her passion and creativity to our students at GOALS and we are excited she has been chosen as this month’s recipient.
