Welcome to Mrs. Kalinec's class!
Name: Jennifer Kalinec
Grade/Subject: 6th grade Math
Hi, my name is Jennifer Kalinec and I am excited to be teaching sixth grade math again at Marion Elementary. This is my third year at Marion and in Allen ISD. Before coming to Marion, I spent 13 years in Richardson ISD where I taught 1st grade, 3rd grade, and was a Math Instructional Coach, working with Kinder-6th grade teachers and students. Sixth grade math is my favorite and I have loved my time at Marion. My goal is to make our math lessons as interactive and hands-on as possible so that students are engaged and excited about their learning.
I grew up in the small east Texas town of Longview and then went on to get my degree in Elementary Education from Stephen F. Austin State University. After college, I moved to the Dallas area to complete my student teaching and have now been here for over 15 years.
My husband, Matt, and I live in Frisco with our son, Tristan, who is 7 months old. I have a stepson named Ethan who is in the 6th grade in Prosper ISD and we have a border collie named Chuck. In our spare time, we love being active, running, spending time at the pool, board games (Clue is our favorite!), and going to Six Flags.
Please don't hesitate to call or email if you have any questions.
Thanks for stopping by :)
