Mrs. K. McKie
I have been with Broward County Public Schools for 14 years and am proud to call myself a BCPS educator. I welcome the students, parents, community and staff to the Awesome Olsen Middle School campus. I have been a student, I am a parent and educator, and as I delve into my position as an administrator the word that encapsulates my role is service. In each capacity that I have had the pleasure to assume, the focus has always been on serving others! The word service brings voice to the collective responsibility we have to the success of our school, community, global society, and ourselves as individuals. “If it is to Be, It’s up to Me; If it is to Be, It’s up to Us!”
We are honored as we travel across the district that everyone speaks highly of “Awesome” Olsen Middle School, like there exists this small jewel tucked away in the recesses of the county. Olsen Middle School is just a building, blocks and stucco; what makes the school “Awesome” is the wonderful people that make up the school and their shared vision of excellence. Helen Keller once said, “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much!” From the friendly staff that you meet when you enter the doors, the administrators who desire to know every parent and student, the teachers whose energy and enthusiasm for their content excites students, the custodial, clerical, cafeteria and security staff that take the time to mentor and support our students, community partners who are there to support various school initiatives both physically, and financially, the students who show up and dedicate their collective efforts to represent “Awesome” Olsen Vikings with integrity, and lastly the parents who support our school through volunteering, donations, and entrusting us with their most precious asset – their children.
I am honored to be a small part of this community and look forward to helping your child achieve academic excellence through rigorous and relevant experiences, respectful and caring relationships, and nurturing the development of social and emotional wellness. At “Awesome” Olsen Middle School, we serve to provide “Excellence for Every Student, Every Day!”
Have an “Awesome” Olsen school year!
