Hi everyone! My name is Amy Dolley and I've been teaching at Olin Elementary since 2016. I am the Pre-Kindergarten teacher, and I also teach MakerSpace to the 1st through 6th grade classes. Before coming to Olin, I taught 3-year-old Preschool for two years in Cedar Rapids, and 1st grade for one year in Solon. I'm originally from Michigan, but have made Iowa my home since moving here for a job in 1996. I have a B.A. in Journalism from Michigan State University, and a B.S. in Elementary Education from Mount Mercy University. I live with my husband, Virgil, and our two dogs (Baxter and Krystal) in Marion. Virgil and I have been married since 1999 and we're still going strong! In my spare time, I like to do scrapbooking, go to concerts, and travel!
I'm looking forward to another great year at Olin! I love this school and this community!
