Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Mr. Kolasinski, (aka Mr. K) and I have been an elementary school teacher for seven years. This is my fourth year at Penrose Elementary and I am excited to be an ongoing part of this community. I got hooked on teaching when I had moved to Krakow, Poland to teach English way back in the '90s. After Poland, I taught technical training for an international software company. I got bored being at a desk and not teaching so I chose to get my Master's degree in education at Regis University in Denver.
We moved to Monument over 6 years ago & love being close to the mountain trails! I have two children and an amazing wife. My wife works for a law firm and my kids are in 7th and 10th grade. They both love playing instruments and being creative. On the weekends, you can find me mountain biking or hiking our amazing Colorado trails.
