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!
