Mrs. Kotalik

Hello! My name is Mrs Kotalik. This will be my fourth year teaching Kindergarten at Shawsheen. I love being a Thunderbird!


I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a Bachelors in Elementary Education. I fell in love with Kindergarten when I student taught, and appreciate their enthusiasm and curiosity. It is my mission to create a fun, safe, and challenging classroom environment so that all students become life-long learners. 


I have four younger siblings and grew up being a role model for them. They inspired me to be a teacher!


I grew up in Loveland, CO. I love living in this beautiful state! In my free time, I like to spend time with my family, friends, and husband. I enjoy reading, watching movies, and swimming! I can't wait to get to know all of you! We will have a great year!
