Paul Olson--Elementary School Principal

Greetings to everyone in Charger Land! I am starting my sixteenth year as Principal at the WWG Elementary. I first came to Walnut Grove back in 1992 as a third grade teacher. I taught third grade for 10 years before becoming principal. I miss teaching, but I now enjoy helping families each and everyday as a principal. It is a very rewarding job and I love to come to school. I also think it is incredible to now see the students that I taught back as a third grade teacher sending their children to the school. Time goes by faster each year. Westbrook Walnut Grove is the best place to raise a family. I work with a great staff that is caring, fun-loving, driven, and best of all, passionate about student learning. Our teachers, cooks, bus drivers, paraprofessionals, and other support staff are the best! If you have any questions about our elementary, please do not hesitate to call. Go Chargers!!!!
