Mr. Kovarik 4th Grade Room 35
Phone/Voicemail (708) 798-3424 EXT: 2235
Welcome to Room 35! My name is Chris Kovarik, and I’m your child’s teacher for this 4th grade year at Churchill. My teaching journey goes like this…
I grew up in California & Nevada, worked in the hotel industry for 7 years, and graduated from UNLV (Go Rebels!) with a business degree. Seeking something new & exciting, I worked as a sub/guest teacher in grades K-6 for 2 years, fell in love with teaching, and decided to return to college for a master’s degree in elementary education. After graduation, I finally earned my very own classroom, spent the next eight years teaching 5th grade in the Clark County School District of Nevada (5th largest in the nation) and have taught 4th grade the last five years at Churchill. Overall, in 15 years in the classroom, I have personally impacted over 300 students! Besides teaching, I host a boys’ club (Dude Crew) & Basketball Club.
My wife is also a veteran teacher, and we have daughters that are 4th & 8th grade students. We are both very excited to continue to make a difference in children’s lives.
I want everyone to picture our classroom as a safe place to learn, where we all work together as a family. Among many things, we will embrace fiction & non-fiction, venture into the writing process, and build grammar & new vocabulary. We will also explore mathematics, solve the “mysteries” of science, and will learn about our amazing state/country through extensive social studies units. I am excited about this year and look forward to watching all my students succeed & progress...Mr. K!
