All About Miss Laskowski Thanks for stopping by! I am very excited to start the year in Fourth Grade at Queen City Academy. In my classroom, we will study English Language Arts and Social Studies.
I have been working with children since I was 14 years old! Every summer in high school, I volunteered at the local YMCA Summer Camp. I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a teacher and I wanted to travel. I had the opportunity to study abroad in London and travel throughout Europe to learn more about different cultures as well as my own family's history. Throughout my studies, I had was able to gain a greater respect for teachers in many different countries.
After graduating from Kean University with a B.A. in Elementary Education and History, I worked in Scotch Plains for two years teaching third and fourth grade. However, I felt that I wanted to travel more. That summer, I decided to move Japan to teach English as a Foreign Language. Teaching and living in Japan was a fantastic opportunity, filled with culture, language and food. I loved every minute of it!
I hope you're looking forward to a fantastic school year. I am looking forward to learning with you and from you!
