Principal's Message

To All of our Families and Community Members,

It is with great joy that I find myself in Clawson Public Schools again!  I had the privilege of serving the Clawson school district from 2012 - 2017 as a Clawson Middle School ELA teacher, and as a Clawson High School English and Integrated Studies teacher.  While in Clawson previously, I was a member of the School Improvement Team, co-directed the school musical, served as a ninth grade student senate sponsor, and was honored to participate in the Galileo Teacher Leadership Program and Aspiring Principals’ Leadership Academy through Oakland Schools.

Serving as an administrator has been a longtime goal of mine.  Prior to becoming the principal of Clawson High School and Middle School, I served as principal of Oakland FlexTech High School, a project-based learning high school in Farmington Hills, MI.  I also return to Clawson with 18 cumulative years in education, with experience in teaching all grade levels from 6 - 12 in settings within the greater Houston, Austin, TX and Orlando, FL areas.  

In addition to serving as a school leader, one of the most impactful experiences I have had was working for Disney World on the College Program, where I took courses toward my undergraduate degree in Disney Leadership, Hospitality, Management, and the Disney Way. The things I learned from that internship experience have remained with me throughout my adult life, and I will always be grateful for that experience.  I am a firm believer in connecting students with experts, experiences, research, and other opportunities to further explore their passions, and I am honored to work in a district that upholds these same values for our students.

I have a lot of love for this district!  In addition to serving as an administrator here, my husband Aaron and I have two children enrolled in Clawson Schools via School of Choice.  I cannot speak enough about the incredible work the staff does to provide for our families; equally, I could not be more proud to work for a community that is so supportive and involved as the families of Clawson Public Schools are.

I look forward to serving this community for many years to come.


With Clawson Pride,

Kim Olson
