My name is Mrs. Olivia Speir, and I am thrilled to be your child’s fifth grade teacher this year! I am very excited to be joining the Indian Lane family and can’t wait to watch your child learn and grow each day!
I come to Indian Lane with ten years of teaching experience at School Lane Charter School in Bensalem, PA. I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 6th grade and look forward to finally teaching 5th! I went to Lehigh University where I received a bachelors in Mathematics and a Masters of Elementary Education. I obtained my Special Education certificate as well through Saint Joseph's University to better meet the needs of the students in my classroom. I have a true passion for learning and believe that all students can persevere and grow when given the chance! Math is my jam, and I am looking forward to being the 5th grade AMP teacher this year.
I live in Ardmore with my husband, daughter and pup! In my free time, I enjoy reading, corny math jokes (see below), all things Harry Potter (get ready to find out which Hogwarts House you'll be in!), running and exercising, and spending time with my family!
I have an almost 2 year old, Eliza, who keeps us very busy! She is the light of my life and has changed the definition of love for my husband and I. What an amazing experience to watch her grow. I am beyond grateful to have your trust as I support your child through their educational journey this year. It is my goal to foster their innate love of learning, curiosity, and resiliency! Here's to a FANTASTIC year!
