All About Mr. Kmak

My name is Mr. Kmak and I am one of the two Math and Science teachers for fourth grade!
I am very excited to share this experience of everything being brand new with everyone, and am looking forward to making this year amazing. I graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, and have obtained my English Second Language endorsement from Benedictine University (Main Campus in Lisle, IL). I have worked in Chicago schools for the last 8 years, and have experience in all grade levels and subjects.
I wanted to become a teacher ever since my first job at fifteen. I taught swim lessons to kids of all ages and ended up going from one-on-one lessons to full classes of thirty students in the deep end. There are a lot of teachers in my family. My older brother, his wife, and my mother all have taught many different grade levels.
My wife and I have a family of dogs, and have adopted two rescue dogs since moving here to Arizona in June. My favorite season is fall. I love everything pumpkin and Halloween. 
I am a huge sports fan. I love my Bulls, Blackhawks, and Bears. My two favorite baseball teams are the White Sox and anyone who plays the Cubs.
