Mrs. Kowalek's Classroom
My name is Josephine Kowalek and I have been a teacher for 22 years in the Chester Upland School District. I attended Widener University and earned a BA in Education certified to teach Spanish K-12 grade. I then continued my education and became certified in Elementary Education and earned a Masters in Education. As a teacher of EL students, I continued my education and earned an EL certification. I enjoy reading many kinds of topics, spending time with family, gardening and cooking new recipes. Most of all I enjoy teaching my EL students. Teaching students whose native language isn't English is a privilege and a challenge at the same time. As a teacher of EL students there is no greater reward to see our EL students become more proficient in English and acquire the fundamental literacy skills to communicate in English.
