3K (Three-Year-Old Kindergarten)

Alexandra Malkowski - 3K Teacher

My Qualifications

I completed my elementary education teaching studies at the College of St. Scholastica - St. Paul and have been an early childhood teacher for four years, mostly within Catholic Schools both here in Wisconsin and in Minnesota.  I have taught 2K, 3K, 4K and 5K as a licensed teacher and have also worked as an aide or lead teacher in a preschool setting for two additional years while going to school for teaching.  I find the most joy in helping young learners make discoveries about the world around them, their faith, and friendship!

My Teaching Philosophy

I believe that young children thrive within a safe environment with established routines and boundaries in order to be successful in a school setting.  Within this setting, children are given opportunities to become independent and grow in their cognitive, social-emotional, physical, and faith development through free exploration, thematic play-based centers, and teacher led-activities.  A classroom culture of respect and love for one another are at the center of creating our St. Joe's school family!

Why do I teach at St. Joe's?

I have always sought out teaching positions within Catholic Schools because I appreciate truly feeling like part of a family and community where I am supported and understood.  I love being able to share my faith with students through prayer, bible stories and leading by example with Catholic values.  I am excited to be joining the St. Joe's team as we work together to inspire love in every word, respect in every action, and confidence in every heart!

Fun Facts about Me

I am a twin!  I used to be a pastry chef!  My husband and I love spending time outside in both the summer and winter months camping, hiking, paddleboarding, ice skating and snow shoeing!
