Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Laurette Kozlik
My name is Laurette Kozlik and I am thrilled to be teaching Second Grade at Pine Run Elementary School. While I may not have started my career in education, my undergraduate degree is in business, I found my calling later in life and have never looked back! My inspiration, and what led me to this change, was the amazing staff I now work with at Pine Run Elementary School.
I am a proud mother of two wonderful sons who were Pine Run graduates. When my boys were young, I realized that they had significant special needs. As they began school and I watched them struggle both academically and socially, I knew I had to do more to understand their disabilities and become their advocate. During this journey, I worked closely with their teachers to develop specially designed instruction plans, and at the same time, built a great appreciation for the dedication and commitment these teachers provided to all their students. It was at that moment that I knew I wanted to become a teacher!
I have devoted the last eleven years to the wonderful students I have served in the Central Bucks School District. While teaching at Titus, Warwick, and Groveland Elementary Schools, I employed patience, support, understanding, and differentiated instruction to help my students grow, succeed, and thrive. My goal has always been, and continues to be, for my students to feel welcomed, comfortable, safe, and confident in their ability to learn and grow both socially and academically. I strongly believe that every child's ideas, opinions, and feelings are to be respected. I work hard to create a classroom community that encourages open and positive communication between teachers, parents, and students.
I am proud to be your child's classroom teacher. Rest assured, that your child will be treated with compassion, kindness, and understanding while in my care. I look forward to working with you, as a team, to help your child reach their potential knowing that together we can make second grade a terrific year!
When I am able to relax with friends and family, I enjoy volunteering at the Bucks County SPCA with my son Sean, playing with my three dachshunds, gardening, reading, traveling, visiting NYC, watching movies with my son Ian, strolling through an art museum, and enjoying live music with my husband.
