My name is Brittany Kawa. I am very excited to be your child’s third grade teacher this year at Palos East! This will be my second year teaching at Palos East Elementary School, but my fourth year as an educator. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and began my career teaching third grade at my former grammar school in Oak Lawn. Third grade is a year full of fun and exploration! I love watching how much students grow academically in their third grade year throughout all academic areas.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my friends, family and dog, reading books both for fun and educational purposes, and enjoying our beautiful city of Chicago. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns; I would be more than happy to help! I cannot wait to embark on another amazing year in the third grade with you and your student! Please feel free to view my homework page daily for assignments and upcoming events!
