L'éducation physique et sportive (EPS)
Bonjour! Je m’appelle Madame Kaufenberg!
I’m thrilled to return to LNFI this year in the capacity of physical education teacher. This will be my eighth year of teaching and my tenth year working in the classroom. I entered into education as a special education paraprofessional. I taught 3rd grade here at L’étoile du Nord from 2011 – 2015. I taught middle school and high school French after that, and returned home to LNFI last year as the physical education teacher.
I love this school and I am passionate about promoting a healthy lifestyle for our LNFI community!
Some random facts about me:
- I live with my husband, Brian, our son, Felix, and our dog, Teddy Roosevelt.
- I taught classical ballet for over a decade.
- My favorite color is blue.
- In my (very limited) free time I love projects of all kinds - crafts, painting, and sewing especially.
