My name is Paulette Kitko and I teach Middle School Science & Religion. I live near Prince Gallitzin with my husband Ken, and our cat Pouncey! I enjoy painting and making crafts for our shop, American Honey. Some of my favorite pastimes are walking, kayaking, taking pictures, travelling, and reading. I was a student at SFS for Kindergarten through grade 8. It has been great teaching at Saint Francis the last 14 years.
My educational philosophy encompasses a variety of aspects, focusing on the idea that all children want to and are able to learn. Students must be taught with individuality. Students have many ways of learning and an effective teacher will connect with her class using various teaching styles. School should be a place where a child gains a love of learning, feels safe, welcome and motivated. I believe by combining a love of children and a love of learning, I can be an effective facilitator of learning.
