Hello, my name is JoAnn Kowalski. This is my seventh year at Liberty Elementary,
but my 33rd year of teaching. I was a reading teacher for eight years in a western suburb of Illinois. I attended Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois for my Bachelors degree. I obtained my Master's degree in Educational Administration from Northern Illinois University. When moving to Virginia I went back to school at Shenandoah University to obtain my Reading Specialist certification. I eagerly look forward to working with Liberty Elementary School teachers and eagles. Presently I live in Berryville, VA with my husband, one weimaraner and three horses. Our grandchildren, Auggie and Isaac, prompted our move here. In addition to teaching I enjoy trail riding, quilting, and spending time with my family.
