First Lady & Friends

Alexa Lou Olson on receiving the MVE award and empowering students through inclusion

Utah’s First Lady, Abby Cox, is joined by Alexa Lou Olson(Teacher at Bountiful High School) to talk about Alexa’s passion for education, how feeling excluded in PE growing up led her to pursue an education in kinesiology, and the people in her life who helped her find success during her collegiate years.

We also dive into Alexa being honored as a Utah Jazz “Most Valuable Educator” through Instructure, the impact that an educator can have on a student’s ability and passion for learning, and the hardships that educators and students are both experiencing right now during such a tumultuous time.

Then we talk about the support that Bountiful High has received for its Unified Sports team, how the team has made an impact on the culture of the school, and some of the biggest misconceptions surrounding the job of an educator.
