Olivia Pennington » BIO


Olivia graduated with a degree in Elementary Education from Olivet Nazarene University. She
and her husband, Zac, moved to Franklin after graduation where she began teaching 1st and
5th grade. After having her second child, she left the classroom full-time and went on to teach at
local Christian preschools for the last 6 years.

As soon as Olivia and her children experienced Christian school, Olivia knew that she wanted
her children to experience a K-12 Christian education. Within minutes of touring GCA, the Lord
placed a desire on her heart to teach there someday. She is thrilled to fulfill that desire by
joining the team at GCA and locking arms with fellow believers.

When Olivia is not in the classroom, you can find her enjoying all sorts of adventures. Whether
it’s flying with her husband, hopping on a motorcycle or scuba diving, she never turns down a
chance to have some fun. Olivia lives in Franklin with her husband, two kids, a wheaten terrier, and a bearded dragon.
