About Miss Grodzicki
Hello! My name is Kayla Grodzicki and I am so thrilled to be your child's teacher this year! This will be my third year teaching, as well as my third year at Rising Star!
I actually grew up in the Shawnee Mission School District and graduated from SMW in 2011. It is such an amazing feeling to be teaching in the same district in which I attended! I graduated from Pittsburg State University in the winter of 2016 and then did a long term substitute job in a 4th grade class at Rhein Benninghoven Elementary. This summer I started my Masters degree in Educational Leadership through Kansas State University!
I enjoy spending my free time with friends and family as much as possible! I have two younger brothers who are also students in SMSD and they are a blast to be around. I have a little pup named Oliver who definitely keeps me busy and on my toes. When I am not spending my time with my loved ones, I am most likely at the gym, going on walks with Ollie, or trying new recipes in the kitchen!
I am so looking forward to teaching, learning from, and growing with your student this year! We will be learning so much and working together cooperatively to solve problems. I take pride in my classroom feeling like a family, and I want all of my students to know that they are in a safe and engaging place to learn and grow!
Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know me!
