    Hello there!  I'm Mrs. Csakany (sa-kay-nee) and I'm excited to be a part of the 2021-2022 Fifth Grade Team!  I grew up in Sayville, New York, a small town on the south shore of Long Island and moved to North Carolina in 2006.  I graduated from SUNY New Paltz in 2002 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education.  I then taught several different grade levels on Long Island as I worked on earning my Master's degree from SUNY Stony Brook in 2005.  In 2006, I moved to North Carolina and began teaching in the Alamance-Burlington School System.  I have been a classroom teacher at Highland since the school opened in 2007 and have also taught 2nd and 3rd grade while I've been at Highland.  I look forward to an exciting year with my students as we learn, laugh, and grow together!
