Mrs. Kalkowski


 I have been a teacher at Arcadia since 2004. I have a Masters Degree in Reading and love to try new strategies in the classroom. I am married with three kids and one beautiful dog. I am super excited about exploring the best ways to teach First Grade through Technology. This is definitely a challenge, but it is helping me to become a better teacher! Here's to an adventurous year!
