Kimberly Mason

 I have a Master’s degree in Elementary Education from Minnesota State University-Mankato. I majored in Elementary Education and minored in Art Education at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Studying overseas in Grantham, England at Harlaxton College was definitely the spark that started my passion for world travel and adventure. 

 I’ve taught at Olson Elementary since 1999. Prior to Olson, I taught three years at a private school called TesseracT, one year as an intern at Normandale Elementary, a year as a substitute teacher in the St. Paul Public Schools, and began my teaching career as an assistant teacher at a Chicago Montessori school. 

For 20 summers, I have had the amazing opportunity to work for an international learning company called Quantum Learning Network teaching accelerated learning and life skills at summer camps called SuperCamp.  I taught academic strategies, communication skills, team building, and guided students through challenging activities such as: ropes courses, white water rafting, rock climbing, mountain hiking, orienteering, and canyoning. Some of my favorite places I've worked have been: Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and Switzerland.

 When I'm not teaching, I mostly love to spend time with my wonderful husband, Steve, our hilarious son, Luke (5/1/05) and our smiley daughter, Kate (4/5/07). We also love to telemark and cross country ski, canoe, camp, hike, travel, read, spend time with family and friends, and go to movies when we can find a babysitter!
