Ms. GK


Hello all! My name is Aviva Olsen, but I prefer to be called by my maiden name Ms.GK (Ms. Grans-Korsh).  I will be your 7th grade Life Science teacher this year!  

A little about me:

I started teaching at Sanford in 2012.  I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Minnesota State University, Mankato (MSU) with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and a concentration in Middle School Science--GO MAVERICKS! 

Then in 2019, I earned my Master's Degree in Youth Developement Leadership from the University of Minnesota--GO GOPHERS!  I strongly believe in the philosophy of teaching the whole student.  I might be your student's science teacher, but I want them to learn organization, kindness and responsibility in my class in addition to science content.

My preferred method of contact is through my MPS email (, but I am here for you! Never hesitate to call, email or come to Sanford in person.

If you're able to and would like to donate to our science classroom, feel free to check out my Amazon Classroom wishlist!  Any and all donations are greatly appreciated!!  Thank you! Ms. GK
