Hello! And Welcome to the 2020 - 2021 school year. My name is Miss Kowalski and I am overjoyed to be starting my first year teaching here at TCA. It means so much to be back at the school I attended when I was in elementary school/middle school. I cannot wait to start the year off!
Me and everyone at TCA is excited to learn and grow with the students. I will provide a safe and open environment working hard to fulfill all students' needs. My goal is to have a fun and SAFE year. I look forward to working with you all :)
A little about me
I graduated from TCA in 2010 and then attended La Salle Peru Township High School graduating in 2014. After that, I attended Illinois State University to get my Bachelors in Elementary Education. After graduating ISU in the fall of 2019, I substitute taught for Ottawa, Oglesby, Mendota, and La Salle school districts. I am extremely happy to now have a class of my own and start my career that I have been passionate about for a long time.
I am signing ALL students planners at the end of the day to check homework
Please note that there may be revisions to the schedule due to how far
we may get in class and changes during the week.
Every test (besides spelling and reading) will vary depending on how far we get in class.
Spelling and reading will be the only set test date and it will be every Friday
