All About Mr. Kmak

Welcome to Physical Education (PE) at the Academies of Math and Science: Desert Sky! My name is Mr. Kmak and I will be your child’s teacher this year. I am very excited to lead our classes and plan our sport teams and annual events. I 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 was a 4th Grade Math and Science teacher here at AMS Desert Sky during the opening school year in 2018-2019, and have been the PE Coordinator and Athletic Director since 2019.

 

As your child’s teacher, I look forward to developing engaging, interesting, and challenging lessons designed to meet the standards of Arizona’s curriculum. Students will be assessed in various participation efforts, as well as knowledge of rules and application of individual and team sports. I am very confident in the facilities and equipment at Desert Sky and will ensure that your child receives the best instruction to fit their physical education needs.

We encourage parent involvement and communication. It is my firm belief that discipline in the classroom relates to discipline in sports. We are rolling out a new policy for Middle School Sports, where no student can participate in sports if they are on a red card. I highly encourage you to constantly be checking your child’s grades through PowerSchool, and Class Dojo account frequently. Please feel free to contact us with questions or concerns through ClassDojo, or directly calling the school at 623-242-2597. We thank you in advance for your support throughout the school year. We encourage every family to continue working with their child at home in order to retain the knowledge they learn throughout the school year.
