Donna Kozma

Donna Kozma has been employed at JKL Bahweting School since 1996.  She taught fifth grade for eight years in her early years at JKL.  She next served in administration for nine years, as State and Federal Programs Coordinator and then Instruction and Assessement Specialist.  In 2015, Donna returned to her first love, teaching, as a Reading Recovery (R) interventionist.  She also coordinates JLK's district and state assessments.  She is committed to helping all students achieve at grade level and beyond in reading and writing.  She believes the key to lifelong learning is to develop personal relationships with students and to know and use their strengths as the starting point for overcoming weaknesses.  Ensuring that every student views themselves as a good person and a capable learner is priority.  She lives in Sault Ste Marie and competes in dog agility with her Australian Shepherd, Toro.
