About Mrs. Kowalski

Hello!
I am very much looking forward to a new chapter teaching math to our Willow Springs 8th graders!  I grew up in a small town in Kentucky then found my way to the big city of Dallas to attend SMU. Though I started as a clarinet major, I finished with degrees in Math and Computer Science!  Shortly after graduating I began teaching secondary math in 2004 and haven't looked back. After 2 years teaching in Virginia Beach and 15 years in Plano, I'm excited to make my mark in Lovejoy ISD.
 
My husband and I met waiting tables at the original Snuffer's on lower Greenville in Dallas and have since had the gift of three sweet sons: twin boys attending Sloan Creek and another at Hart.  We are happy to be part of the Lovejoy family!  Besides enjoying teaching math to children, I also love watching my boys play baseball and soccer and try new things - like instruments!  I love all things music and play several instruments for fun. I also love the outdoors and traveling and being active!
 
As for this school year, I cannot wait to meet all of my new students. It is a joy for me to see each of you grow in math and continue your journey towards becoming your best self!
