My name is Jennifer Kurpiewski. This is my ninth year teaching. I took some time off while my children were young and after substituting last year in several grades long term, I feel confident doing that again this year.
I taught last year here at Dailard in 4th, 3rd, kindergarten, and did intervention for 4th/5th grade. Previously, I worked for three years at Knox Elementary (grades 4 & 5) and three years at Freedom Crest (grades 1-3). I graduated from San Diego State University in 2001 and received my credential from SDSU's Accelerated Block in 2002 (teaching kinder and bilingual 4th). I received my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from SDSU in 2008.
I have a background in music, dance, and theater. I studied music and dance from Ghana, Africa for four years at SDSU under professor John Flood and Akayaa Atule.
Two years ago I got into coding and look forward to teaching an intro to coding as well as coding my robots as time permits. I also had some fun in April attending the robotics workshop at Legoland. I look forward to working on the robotics team this year at Dailard.
I enjoy working with a diverse staff and student population. I look forward to meeting YOU the parents, guardians, and community members this year. I know that this will be a great year and a great partnership team: the administration and staff, myself, you, and most importantly your child.
