About Me

Welcome to my webpage! My name is Miss Kawczynski and I teach 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Communications. 

This course provides students with an introduction to basic skills and techniques for public speaking, interpersonal communication, primary tools of drama and theatre, and media literacy concepts. Students will develop the skills of articulation, poise and presence through repeated experience in practice, performance, and measured self-confidence.  

Here is a bit of information about me:

I graduated from Illinois State University in 2014. I started teaching at Old Quarry in the fall of that year. I created the Commuications curriculum in 2016, and am excited to be teaching subjects and topics I am passionate about. My hope is that this encore class will spark new interests in students in areas they may not have explored before, as well as build skills they will need for their future careers!

In my free time I enjoy singing, reading, and spending time with family and friends. I also am one of the Drama Club sponsors. I enjoy helping young actors build their performance skills!
