About Me

    Hello!  I'm Mrs. Onken.   I am happy to be back in Olin this year!  Here is a little bit about me.  I was born and raised in a small town in Iowa.  I graduated from Loras College as a non-traditional student in 2007. Non-traditional just means that I went back to school a little later in life than the traditional college student.  This is now my seventh year teaching at the 6th grade level. 
    I come from a very large family of 11 children.  There was always something going on at home!  I enjoy hanging out with family and friends.   In my free time, I enjoy reading and watching movies.  I also enjoy being outdoors, especially at my parent's farm.  I love to go for walks, hikes, and camping.
    I was married last year and love hanging out with my new family!  We are really excited this year as my first baby is due in November and we're excited to be having a boy!! It's going to be a busy year, but I very much look forward to it!!
    Enough about me.  Enjoy searching through the site and I hope you find it useful and informative.
