    About the Teacher

    Hi! My name is Michelle Kwasny and I am so excited to be teaching 5th grade ELA this year. This is my fourth year at Highland Elementary and my first year teaching 5th grade ELA. I am originally from Vancouver, Canada and graduated with my Bachelors in English from the University of Victoria. I have a second Bachelors in Child and Family Development and completed my Masters of Teaching this summer from Belhaven. I have taught overseas in Germany and South Korea and am thrilled to now call Mississippi 'home.' I have a wonderful husband of 10 years and 2 beautiful children. Blake will be 5 in September and Hattie is 2.5 years old. We also have 2 dogs - Chopper and Diesel. My hobbies include reading, traveling, camping, and photography.

    Don't hesitate to contact me for any questions or concerns. Let's have a great year!!
