Principal: Jared Olsen

I grew up in the states of Oregon, and Utah as the 7th of 11 children. I became an Elementary Teacher after graduating from Eastern Oregon University. I taught for 7 years in 1st and 4th and Title 1. I then moved into administration. I have been an assistant principal or principal for the past 11 years. I love kids and cherish the opportunity to work with them each and every day. My wife Mardine and I have been married for over 20 years. We have five children. Our son McKay (19) is currently serving his mission in Guatemala and daughters Emma (17) and Lora (15) attend FHS. Lydia (9) and Brenna (6) attend here at FES. We love living in Fruitland so close to both of our families.

Student Achievement Specialist: Christy Vandeberg

I graduated from Central Washington University in 1992 with a Bachelors Degree, K-8 Elementary Education with a Reading Minor. I worked in the Medford School District for two years teaching third grade before meeting my husband and getting married in 1994. I did a long-term sub in Sublimity, Oregon outside of Salem for three months teaching in a second grade classroom and then subbed for the rest of that school year. I continued teaching fourth grade for two years and a 1st/2nd blend for one year in Harrisburg, Oregon. Our extended family moved to Idaho in 1998 and we decided to follow. I taught third grade at Fruitland Elementary for five years before becoming the Student Achievement Specialist in 2003. I went back to school and received my Gifted & Talented Endorsement to teach gifted education at this time. I have two boys, and have been happily married since 1994. The Fruitland community is wonderful and Ican’t think of being anywhere else.

I have always felt drawn to the education field & helping others. Throughout my college years, I was given the opportunity teaching continuing education courses at Treasure Valley Community College for 10 years. During that time, I graduated from the College of Idaho with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology/Sociology. I furthered my education attending Northwest Nazarene University, completing my Masters in education/School Counseling in May 1995. In the fall of 1995, I was hired as the Elementary School Counselor (K-4) for Fruitland Elementary School. I have been married to Martin Wilson (Fruitland class of 1985) for over 20 woderful years. We have two daughters, one attending FHS & the other at TVCC. I absolutely love my job and come to work excited to see the students every day.

This is my first year at the ECC and I could not be more excited to be here. I have lived in Fruitland since I was two years old. Before that we lived in Weiser. I currently attend Western Governors University and am getting my degree in Business Administration. My family has always been very involved in the school system here in Fruitland with my mother being the Student Achievement Specialist here at FES and me now working at the ECC as the Administrative Assistant. I have one younger brother that attends FHS and is just starting his freshman year. My hobbies outside of work include cooking, reading, playing games with family and friends, and going to see the world.
