Mrs. Olivia Ackerson
I am proud to say this is my 8th year as a Richlands Bobcat! I have taught third grade all 8 years! Third grade was my favorite year in school and now I have the opportunity to instill that love into my students.
I was brought up in a small town in Maryland. During school I participated in activities such as band and tennis. I graduated from Frostburg State University with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education in December 2009. I was brought to North Carolina by my husband who was a Navy Corpsman. Before becoming a third grade teacher, I was also a substitute in Onslow County. I live with my husband, 3 daughters, and our dog! Teaching is a big passion of mine, but I also enjoy going to the beach, playing board games, reading, baking, and relaxing!
As a teacher at Richlands Elementary School I serve on our school Lighthouse Team as well as a mentor to beginning teachers. I recently became a partnership teacher with UNCW and will be hosting my second intern during the fall semester.
