Meet the Team
My name is Angie Olson
I am the teacher and founder of Lucky Little Learners. I created Lucky Little Learners as a way to connect with and support teachers. I believe teachers have the most important job on the planet.
I have taught kindergarten, first, and second grade. I received my master’s degree in mathematics and find that the research and learning that took place to earn this degree plays a direct impact on the quality of the resources that we create for teachers.
Lucky Little Learners started as a hobby for me and has now evolved into a team of master teachers who are passionate about making an impact on the field of education.
We are committed to supporting the teacher community by donating to several causes. Learn more
Our goal is to inspire and support the education community one teacher, one resource, and one interaction at a time.

Angie Olson is the founder of Lucky Little Learners, LLC. She has a bachelor’s degree in elementary education with an emphasis in preprimary education. Angie received her master’s degree in mathematics in 2009 from Bemidji State University. She has taught kindergarten, first, and second grade with a total of eleven years of experience in the public school setting. She has served as grade level team leader, child study team facilitator, head of the math and literacy curriculum teams, and technology integrationist. Angie has also presented at conferences for educators. She lives in Minnesota with her husband and daughter.
I was the little girl who just knew she wanted to be a teacher and spent summer vacations playing school with anyone who’d participate. Over the years I’ve taught Kindergarten, 1st, & 2nd grades, K-5 Intervention, and most recently, I worked for my school district as an Instructional Coach and Literacy Coordinator. My passion is with anything and everything literacy – especially writing. So, my role with Lucky Little Learners is a little bit like the stars aligning for me. I love being able to support teachers all over the world through our website and blog content!
Teri Holehouse earned her bachelor’s degree in both elementary education & early childhood education from the University of North Dakota. Later, she earned her master’s degree in curriculum & instruction from St. Catherine University. She’s been teaching since 2010. She has taught Kindergarten, Fourth Grade, and is currently teaching First Grade. Teri lives in Minnesota with her husband, two daughters, and son.
I have always been passionate about working with children and have been working for the past 7 years as a second grade Special Education Teacher within the New York City Department of Education. I have my Master’s of Science Degree in Education from Hunter College, with a specialization in Childhood Special Education with Learning Disabilities. Working firsthand inside the classroom has allowed me to truly understand the importance of adapting lessons to enrich a student’s learning experience. That is why I believe that learning should be hands-on, visual, interactive and fun! With the right resources and strategies, I know all students can succeed. When I’m not teaching, you can find me spending time with my husband and two children, or behind the lens photographing the world around me.
Ever since the 1st grade, I knew a career in education was my path. I graduated from Southwest MN State University with a major in Elementary Education and began teaching in 2008. Over the last 15 years, I taught 4th grade and 2nd grade. I just made the switch to teaching 1st grade in 2022 and I LOVE it! I used to say my favorite subject to teach was math but now that I am now LETRS trained it has fueled my passion for teaching my first graders to read. I love to help my struggling firsties make connections that help them grow in confidence and discover the adventures found in books. Growing up, reading was my favorite pastime and I was that kid who found the mistakes in books so working with Lucky Little Learners as an editor and supporting educators has been a great fit.
