• Mrs.Olinger  Hello! My name is Lissa Olinger and this is my 3rd year at WMS, and I'm really excited to be part of the amazing 6th grade team. I earned my BA in Elementary Education (2006), my M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction (2017) and my library media endorsement from the University of Montana.  I was a teacher in Lolo School District for 8 years in a variety of positions. My husband, Dale Olinger, is the superintendent at Lolo School District and we have 2 wonderful children--Emma (7) and Jack (4)-- and a spunky chocolate lab, Jazz (9).  We are so lucky to live and work in this beautiful state and you'll often find me hiking, fishing and floating the river. I love to travel and spent a summer teaching English in Chile in 2009.  It was one of the best experiences of my life and I look forward to traveling and seeing the world with my two children as they grow older.  I'm an avid reader, mostly of young adult and children's fiction, and I am always looking for new titles to read. My favorite book is The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle by Avi.   I look forward to a great year of adventures with this group of students.  

    "Your story matters, so make it a great one!"

    Teamed for Success!
