Hello! I am Keena Brossart. I come to you from Oregon by way of Montana, Texas, and South Minneapolis. I am so excited to be one of Olson's Literacy Coaches. I've taught middle school English Language Arts for fourteen years and I'm excited to support the amazing teachers and students at Olson. I think education is the most important and honorable work in the world and where true change happens.
I love reading! You can find me in my big blue chair most mornings, inhaling Young Adult literature. My favorite book changes, but right now I have made sure to grab every History Smasher book by Kate Messner as soon as it comes around. Jerry Craft's New Kid and Class Act are amazing. Also, want to laugh? Try the I Funny books by James Patterson. 
If you have any questions, ideas, or just want to sit and recite the lyrics to Hamilton with me, please don't hesitate to reach out at:
