Hi! My name is Mrs. Tori Cole Ollis. I was recently married, so you may have been told my name is Mrs. Cole, but I would love to be called by my new name: Mrs. Ollis! I am very excited for my first year teaching fourth grade and my first year at Hickory Ridge Elementary. I have been teaching for twelve years in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools in second, third, and fifth grade.
I was born in Charlotte and have lived here my entire life. I graduated from Erskine College in South Carolina with a major in Elementary Education and a minor in Spanish. I recently was married to my hubsand, Danny, and we have a golden retriever named Luna. We currently live in Huntersville and are trying to move to Harrisburg soon.
On a personal note, I love arts, crafting, and gaming. I love playing Mario Brothers and Zelda. I also quilt and paint. I am an amateur illustrator and hope to work on illustrating children's books in the future. I am an avid movie watcher and am a huge Star Wars and Avengers fan. Finally, I love going antiquing and collecting classic children's books as well as salt and pepper shakers.
I am looking forward to a fun year. I can't wait to meet you and get to know you!
