Ms. Ozolin has spent all her decade-long career teaching in Tacoma, including her student teaching. She has been a kindergarten and third-grade classroom teacher and for the past three years working as a K-3 collaborative teacher. Her favorite part of teaching is the "ah-ha" moment when a student works through a struggle and sees the benefits of their perseverance. Ms. Ozolin says she is learning so much about technology this year and likes using her new skill set to connect with students and families. And as a parent herself she advises families to give yourselves grace and when learning stops being fun, take a break.
