Meet the Teacher: Mrs. Kolarz

Patricia Kolarz has been teaching at Wyndcroft since 1996. She taught the Early Childhood class for 7 years and Kindergarten for 16 years (including this year).

Why do you like teaching at Wyndcroft?

Kindergarten students are eager to learn and experience all the activities that school has to offer. I especially enjoy seeing their excitement when they start reading independently.

What is your favorite Wyndcroft tradition?

I like the Holiday Bazaar in December. Everyone is happy and excited to shop. It is such a fun day!

What is a unique experience, talent, or interest that you bring to your classroom to help shape the learning experience of your students?

I love children's literature and have a large classroom library. I enjoy sharing these books with the class.

What impresses you about Wyndcroft students?

Children come to Wyndcroft prepared for the school experience. Their parents are eager to assist whenever needed.

What do you want your students to gain from having known you?

My primary goal is for students to have a love of learning new things. I use a variety of teaching methods to make school interesting and rewarding for all students. School should be a fun, enriching place!
