My native language is Polish. I learned English in Elementary School and learned Spanish in High School. I am trilingual and enjoy communicating to parents in three languages. My favorite activities are writing grants and presenting at Annual National Science Teachers Conventions and local conferences. However, my passion is spending time with my daughter.
