Hi, My name is Mr. Olene. This is my nineteeth year teaching at in Shakopee, and my tenth year in third grade (taught second grade for nine years). I grew up across the river in Chaska. I graduated from St. Cloud St. University, and received my Master's of Education degree from St. Mary's University. I live in Shakopee with my two sons Gavin (5th grade), Bennett (3rd grade).
Every summer I fly to New York with my brother-in-law. We go to a cabin in the Adirondacks. Here is the plane we fly in. My brother-in-law built this plane in his basement! We fly over Niagara Falls.My favorite movie is Star Wars. When I was seven I remember going to the theatre to see it. My mom bought me a few toys and I still have them today. Here is a picture of the Death Star playset I got when I was 8.
Here is a life size Han Solo when he was frozen in carbonite by Darth Vader.
Space ships and playsets.
Jabba the Hutt. Before you can ask I will answer your question. No, I don't play with them I am a collector, although Gavin has been lucky enough to open a few toys.
Here is an article my Grandma wrote about me when I was 8 going into 3rd grade.
