Hello, All! I understand that people have requested to know a little more about me, so here goes...
First, the kids usually just call me "Mr. K". It's easy, especially for the little ones, and I kinda' like it anyway. So, please always feel free to address me that way.
I attended Western CT State University in Danbury, graduating with a BA (graphic design concentration). Subsequently, I attended Sacred Heart University, where I earned a Master's degree in Teaching and was awarded for what they deemed my "Outstanding Performance".
I then began my teaching career in Orange in 1996, serving first as a regular education teacher, assigned to a grade 5 position. I enjoyed that role tremendously for the first 13 years of my career. But, when a position opened on the Art team, I embraced the opportunity for change, and began as an Art educator. In the last 8 years, I have never second guessed that decision, for I truly love what I do. I am inspired by the children in my classes, and can only hope to reciprocate.
