Olga Eller

Hello beautiful children and wonderful parents. I’m Olga Eller, a Russian Ukrainian, fluent in English with Russian as my native language. I moved to Colorado from Yalta, Crimea in 2014, with my California/Colorado, American husband and our Russian/American son Michael. We’re raising Michael native bilingual in Russian and English.  I happily began working with DCSD Douglas County School District in 2016.  Before working with DCSD I enjoyed working as a preschool teacher’s assistant in a private Douglas County school.  Before coming to the US I achieved a Master’s Degree in Business and worked in business management successfully for several years (all the while dreaming to become a preschool teacher). Since moving to Colorado I’ve eagerly pursued my teaching education and earned numerous certifications on my way to my teaching degree.  While I miss my beautiful Crimea, I love life in the US, amazingly beautiful Colorado, and especially living in Castle Rock and our Douglas County.

I’m excited to arrive at work each morning and meet all my beautiful little students, smiling and singing Miss Olga Miss Olga! (they fill my soul). I treasure the work, and the love, helping all of your wonderful children enjoy and discover the beauty of life and learning.
