Adam Olmos selected as archdiocesan Elementary Teacher of the Year

Adam Olmos of Holy Spirit Catholic School was selected for Archdiocesan Elementary Teacher of the Year by the archdiocesan Department of Catholic Schools and a selection panel. He received news of this honor at a surprise ceremony at Holy Spirit School on May 8 with archdiocesan Superintendent of Catholic Schools Marti West. The event was livestreamed on archdiocesan social media platforms.

“Mr. Olmos truly radiates the light of Christ in his teaching,” stated information from the school. “Inspired by his grandmother, he learned to raise his voice and sing loud for Christ! Sharing this wisdom, he teaches our students that a way to show your love for God is to share your gifts.”

Staff at Holy Spirit School said that even during distance learning, they have witnessed Olmos’ passion for his students’ engagement with music by teaching the piano via Zoom. “Mr. Olmos brings joy and energy to every class!”

His dedication to Catholic schools goes beyond the classroom. He has taken Holy Spirit students to the Catholic Arts and Academics Competition, “Sing for Christ!” He also leads students on the football field as a coach, and models the importance of service to students through his involvement in Prison Ministry.

Olmos said he accepted the award humbly, affirming the work and talent of his fellow teachers, and encouraged them to find the peace of Christ during this time.

Holy Spirit administrators concluded, “Thank you, Mr. Olmos, we are so proud of your work and appreciate your dedication to Catholic education!”
