Hello all,

Thank you for visiting my teacher page and welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! My name is Miss Piestrak and I am the K-5 Special Education teacher at Penns Valley Intermediate/Elementary School. Words cannot express my excitement for this school year! I am looking forward to having a wonderful school year filled with meaningful learning experiences!

A bit about me:

I graduated in 2016 with an B.S. degree from Bloomsburg University where I received my dual Pk-4 Early Childhood and Pk-8 Special Education certification. I also received my K-12 English as a Second Language (ESL) Program Specialist certification. A few years later, I graduated from Bloomsburg University again but this time with an M.Ed. degree in Reading!

Moreover, this will be my fourth year of teaching but my second year teaching at PVASD. While I am not originally from Centre County, I can certainly say that I have fallen in love with the area and have been enjoying being a part of the community thus far! I am looking forward to adding another year of learning and growing as an educator right alongside our amazing kiddos!

Once again, I am looking forward to this school year and please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions/concerns at kpiestrak@pennsvalley.org. My hope is that we can work together towards the same goal of ensuring your child has a successful learning experience and that they reach their full potential as a learner!
