Hello, My Name Is...

Karen Kinasz



Ms. Karen Kinasz 

Welcome. My name is Ms. Kinasz and I will be teaching 2nd grade at Polk this year. I have worked in education for over 20 years and this is my 15th year employed by District 7. I have a BA degree in elementary education as well as an early childhood endorsement. I also have a MA in school counseling. I have two beautiful daughters (and yes, I am a bit biased). Kristin is 27 and has her MSW.  Amy is 24 and is also an elementary school teacher. We also have one dog and two cats. Life is never boring. I am looking forward to working with your children and making this an exciting and enlightening year for them.

This year Room 5 will be learning many new and exciting things. 

It is only through a cooperative effort between home and school that we can help insure a successful year. There are many things you, as parents can do to help; make sure that homework is completed accurately every night, have your child practice printing, have your child read aloud to you on a regular basis, and talk to your child about what we are doing in class.

I can be reached by e-mail either by clicking on the link at this site or at kinaszka@dhsd7.net. You may also reach me by phone at 313-203-0500.
