Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! I am Ms. Kavalauskas! I am new to the state of Florida and I am very excited to be the Gifted Teacher at Ward-Highlands Elementary. I grew up in the state of Wiscosnin and attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison for my undergraduate degree in Political Science. GO BADGERS! I received my Masters Degree in Urban Special Education from Cardinal Strich University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I taught Special Education for two years in Milwaukee before moving to Florida and I am a Teach for America Alumni.
I have a cat named Bridgette and an Austrailian Shepherd puppy named Firkin. In the last year, I have run two half marathons and I am gearing up to do the Disney Princess Marathon weekend in February. I am thrilled at the idea of getting to dress up as a princess to run! My favorite foods are coffee and peanut butter, but not together.
