Hello! My name is Olivia Tanksley and I am the English Department Chair at Plano West. This is my 21st year of teaching, most of which has been spent at Plano West. I teach English IV-AP and I am also the team leader for English IV-Honors. I have been married for 21 years to my high school sweetheart and we have three kids. Emma is s sophomore at Texas Tech, Brett is a junior at Allen High School, and Kyle is in 6th grade at Boon Elementary in Allen. You can always find us at the baseball field, or at home watching a game. I truly believe that Plano West is the best public high school in the state of Texas!
