Sally OlsenHi, I'm Miss Sally!

I have enjoyed working for the City of La Verne Preschool program for the past 25 years. Currently, I am the Preschool Coordinator of our program. Working with young children has always been my passion. I believe learning can and should be fun.

My husband John and I have two daughters, Robyn and Laura. Both girls attended City of La Verne Preschool when they were young, as well as our grandson, Cruz. John and I both grew up in the La Verne/San Dimas area. Between 1989 and 2002 I ran a Licensed Home Daycare. Between raising our girls and the daycare, I attended Child Development classes at Mt. San Antonio College.

In my spare time I enjoy traveling and a member of a running club. I've completed numerous Half Marathons, as well as completing the Walt Disney World Marathon in 2015 and the L.A. Marathon the last 6 years.
