Dear 4th Grade Students!
My name is Ms. Kacky. It’s actually Kathryn, but my little sister could not say Kathryn when she was little, so she called me Kacky…and it stuck! I am from Denver, Colorado. I have an older sister named Sydney, a younger sister named Ellen and a younger brother named Paul. I have two nephews in 6th and 9th grade, and a niece who is a junior in high school. My parents are also in Colorado. I miss them terribly and go home to visit as often as I can!
I graduated from the University of San Diego with a degree in Diversified Liberal Arts with an emphasis in Bilingual Education. Yes, I speak Spanish. I received my Masters in Administration from Chapman University.
I live in Plymouth, MN, which is about a 45 minute drive to and from work. But, I get to see you guys every day, so it’s worth it! I have a husband named Tony, and we have three handsome, crazy and rambunctious little boys. Charlie is 8 ½ and he is starting Third Grade this year. Teddy is 7 ½ and he is starting Second Grade. Gus is 5 ½ , is about to start Kindergarten…and they are all as cute as can be! I have discovered that being a mother has made me a better teacher. I am fiercely protective and the kids know I am their "Mama Bear" here at school. I promise to love them and take care of them as if they were my own!
I have a lot of friends here in MN and I love spending time with them. We go out for dinners, go to see movies, and we are all in a book club together. I also recently started playing a game called BUNCO with my friends in my neighborhood. My favorite things to do are spend time with my family, go out to eat, check Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram, listen to music, play Candy Crush and read!
Here are some other favorites. My favorite color is red. My favorite food is Mexican…especially chips and salsa. My favorite places to visit are California, Colorado and anywhere in Mexico. My favorite restaurant is a place called 6 Smith. My favorite sport is football…go Broncos!
Here are some things you should know about me. I hate messes! I like to keep my house and classroom nice, organized and neat. I hope you do too! I learn and teach better when it is not too loud. I don’t like bullies and I don’t like people who are disrespectful. I also really appreciate honesty…especially when it is hard to tell the truth!
I can’t wait to hear all about you!
