Debbie Davis-Olson
Learning Specialist & Fourth-Fifth Grade Team Teacher

Debbie comes to us after many years of working in the public schools. Her love for working with children and inspiring success is what brought her to KapKa. She works closely with our teachers and provides specialized individual and small-group instruction that helps students over learning hurdles and maximizes their success.

Debbie has a doctorate in Educational Psychology and has instructed aspiring reading specialists in graduate programs at Seattle University for 20 years. While working with adults is enjoyable and rewarding, Debbie's first and foremost love is working with children and helping them become competent, confident learners.

When she's not at KapKa, you'll find Debbie outdoors. A long-time Seattleite, she's rarely deterred by rain and loves hiking, biking, running and anything outside.

"Ms. Davis-Olson is a passionate, highly skilled instructor who has a gift for diagnosing students' areas of concern and developing individualized strategies for intervention."  - Barry Dorsey, former principal
