Welcome to Mrs. Csakany's 5th Grade ClassKristi Csakany ~ Fifth Grade Teacher
About Mrs. Csakany...
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!
