About Ms. Olfers
This is my fourteenth year teaching Art at Marble Falls Middle School and I have loved every minute. Why? Because my students make every day a good day!
I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with honors, earning a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Visual Art Studies. I am presently two courses shy of a Masters in Counseling from Texas State University in San Marcos. Along with being a teacher, I am a freelance professional artist. In fact, you can see many of my creations painted on the school hallways.
Why teach Art? One of my strongest personality traits is a drive to help others. I was led to teach Art because of a discovered avenue of communication. Growing up with dyslexia, it was hard for me to communicate with others written and verbally. Visual Art opened up a whole new world for me where I could say whatever I wanted. I could create my own world. I wanted to share this opportunity with everyone. I also have a passion and curiosity for learning new things. Art is where every subject converges.
