Mrs. Margot Olenik

Welcome, Brambleton Bears! I am so excited to be back for our 3rd year at Brambleton Middle School and to meet the students!

I am an Instructional Specialist, which means I work with the General Education team to ensure that all students are able to access the general education curriculum.  This year, I will be teaching your students in the small group setting to ensure their access to the general education curriculum, at their pace and instructional level. We will follow the curriculum for the following subjects: Grade 6 U.S. History I to 1865,  Grade 7 U.S. History II 1865-present, Grade 6 Earth Science, and 7th grade Life Science. In addition, I may be your student's teacher for small group Resource, ensuring homework completion, preparing for tests and quizzes, and completing missing work.

I'm happy you are looking at this site; however, all of my assignments,  Google Slides from class, videos, flashcards, homework, and other items will be posted on Google Classroom. The students will also be using Google Keep to post their own assignments. I would appreciate your help in making sure your student completes his or her homework, and help them study for tests. Your students will be completing the same work as the bigger classes, albeit somewhat simplified. There will be a significant amount of writing, and we will be using Read Write 11 to ensure proper grammar, spelling, audio, and talk to text if necessary. You will receive more information on back-to-school night.

Please do not hesitate to email me at with any questions or concerns. If you would like to talk on the phone, we can set up a good time through email. You can rest assured that the students are everything to me and I want to work with you to give your student the best middle school experience possible!
