About Me

Hello 6 Knights!  My name is Mrs. Kaminscky, and I am your social studies teacher. 


When I was a little girl, my sister and I would play school in the basement with our Cabbage Patch kids and stuffed animals.  It was so much fun that I decided to keep playing school as an adult.  I have been a teacher at AUGS since 2001.  (Uh oh, parents, don't do the math… yikes!)  I have taught many subjects and grade levels over the years, but sixth grade social studies might be my favorite unless Mr. Koeune approves my dessert-tasting class… fingers crossed!


School is pretty important to me and my family.  My husband is a teacher and my two daughters want to be teachers when they grow up, but they’re still in elementary school so it’ll be a few years before that happens.  Our cat Boo does not want to be a teacher.  He just wants to take naps. 


I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, baking, playing games, binge-watching good shows, and waiting for my frequent Amazon deliveries.  I also love learning, and I hope you do too.  I am really excited to be your teacher, and I can’t wait to get to know you!
