Mrs. Pal-Kolisz

     Welcome to Kindergarten!  My name is Mrs. Pa-Kolisz, but most people call me Mrs. Pal.  I have been a teacher in the Hendrick Hudson School District for over 25 years and am excited to be your (child's) kindergarten teacher. 

     For those of you who may not know me, I have taught Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade, Second Grade Remote, and Fifth Grade over the years.  I also taught Library for a few years.  I received my Bachelor's Degree in Inclusive Elementary and Special Education from Syracuse University.  I earned my Master's Degree in Computing in Education at Teachers College, Columbia University.  

   I have two children of my own.  My daughter, Sophia is a high school junior and my son, Ryan is entering his last year of middle school this year.  I love having independent children, but I miss working with young learners!  That's one of the main reasons I wanted to go back to teaching kindergarten.  I'm so excited for a year of learning and fun!
