Mrs. Kwapisz Room 22

About Me:
 

Hi! I'm Mrs. Kwapisz (pronounced Kwah-pish) and this is my 12th year teaching 7th grade at Adams. What I love most about teaching is having the opportunity to help my students grow--in their thinking, their learning, and how they view the world.  

I'm a graduate of the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) and Cal State Long Beach.  Even though I grew up in Michigan, I've been living in the Los Angeles area for 14 years. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2-year-old son. Some of my favorite things include going to the beach or on hikes, traveling, Zumba classes, and cooking.  I also enjoy reading when I have the time! The last book I read was Trevor Noah's Born a Crime, and my favorite series is Harry Potter. I look forward to getting to know all of you and to an outstanding 2017-2018 school year!
