Teacher Feature

Mr. Todd Olsen

Give us a little background about yourself:

I was born in Idaho Falls and grew up in Ucon, ID. I come from a family of 8 kids, so there was never a dull moment in our house. My wife and I met on a blind date set up by my sister. We have lived in the Idaho Falls area most of our 22 years of marriage. My wife and I have 4 children, ages 20, 18, 15, and 11.

What are your hobbies? What do you like to do for fun?

I enjoy cycling, basketball, reading,and watching movies with my kids.

How did you get started in teaching?

I have wanted to teach since 2003 but it took me until fall of 2016 before I was able to teach. That is when I started to substitute teach. I quickly fell in love with teaching elementary school.

What is your favorite thing about being a teacher?

My favorite part of teaching is seeing these young kids grow academically as well as growing in confidence.

Why did you choose White Pine?

My children had been attending White Pine for several years and I liked how the teachers cared about my kids and did whatever they could to help them succeed.
