7th Grade U.S. History

My name is Bjorn Olson and I teach 7th grade U.S. History. I grew up in the area and graduated from Blue Earth Area High School. I have taught in Blue Earth since I graduated from Bethel University in 2013 where I received a Bachelors in both History and Social Studies Education. I am also the Middle School Knowledge Bowl Coach and an Officer in the United States Army Reserves.

In my spare time I enjoy visiting historic places, museums and especially battlefields. I have been to every major battle of the Civil War and multiple World War One battlefields. I love teaching 7th graders. Their enthusiasm makes every day a new learning opportunity. I look forward to helping your child grow this year in not only their knowledge of history but also their curiosity, critical thinking, and more.
