Hi! I'm Mrs. Mazurkiewicz and I am so excited to be teaching reading with you this year! I can't wait to read exciting stories. I have many fun things planned for the year.I'd like to tell you about who I am:I grew up in various parts of the country, living in Virginia, Rochester and New Hampshire before my family moved to Buffalo when I was about 9. I lived in a suburb of Buffalo and attended St. Bonaventure University, about an hour south of Buffalo where I studied Elementary Education. I later attended the Buffalo campus at Hilbert for my masters in which I studied Childhood Literacy. I also hold an advanced certificate in TESOL.When I'm not busy teaching, I enjoy a variety of activities. One of my passions is travel. I love to travel whenever I can. I have had the privilege of traveling abroad to many countries including Spain, Italy, Nethlerlands, Belgium and Iceland. This past summer I went to San Diego. It was beautiful and I saw so many great sights!I'm a lover of all things in Buffalo. I love attending local events and festivals. My husband and I enjoy going to Sabres games, but I wish they played better!I look forward to working with you this year and know that this will be a great year in reading as we work together!
