Hello Ola Family,
Welcome to 7th grade... I'm so excited about the start of the school year! My name is Mr. Stanley and I will be your Social Studies teacher. This is my second year teaching and second year at Ola Middle. In addition to teaching, I coach cross country, basketball, and track at Ola Middle. Prior to teaching, I spent 25 years with the Target Corporation as an executive manager. I believe my past work experience brings a fresh and unique perspective to the classroom.
I attended Eastern Michigan University where I received a post-baccurlate certificate in secondary education (Social Studies) in 2021. I completed my student teaching at Oak Valley Middle School in Commerece Township, Michigan. I also have a bachelors degree in Business Management from the University of Phoenix.
I have a son who is 23 and recently married. Hayden and his wife Morgan currently own "Fire and Ice" restaurant on Jackson Lake. On the weekends/summers I spend my time helping out at the restaurant. If I have free time, I enjoy golfing or spending it on the lake with friends and family.
As a parent and teacher, I truly understand the importance of an outstanding education. I also understand that your student is your first priority. I promise they will receive a first-class education and one that will help prepare them for the future. As a social studies teacher, I want my students to be active in their school and community. If you have a question or concern, please don't hesitate to reach out. I'm looking forward to meeting you!
