I was born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin. I am married to Han Olmstead, we have two children, Marika and Walter and a new grandson Jonah. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1978 with a double major in Sociology and African American Studies. I was an Army Medical Service Corps Officer, and retired in 1994. I have been teaching at South San since the 1997-1998 School year. I currently teach Government and Economics, regular classes and Dual Credit. I also teach a Military History Elective. We will be on a block schedule this year. Students will alternate class schedules every other day, 90 minute class periods. This will be a challenge and learning opportunity for both teachers and students.
