Welcome to the new school year! My name is Miss Liz Kilkus, and I am your child's first grade teacher. I'm looking forward to a year of learning, fun, and adventures.
I was born in Winona and attended WACS and Cotter from EduCare through graduation. I attended the College of St. Benedict where I received a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, and recently graduated from St. Mary's University with a Master's Degree in Teaching and Learning. For the last 5 years, I taught kindergarten at the Catholic schools in Austin, MN. I am excited that my teaching journey brought me back home to WACS!I am the youngest of three children - I have an older sister, brother-in-law and puppy-niece and an older brother and sister-in-law with baby on the way. Outside of school, I enjoy running, playing piano, reading, baking, and spending time with family and friends. Much of my time the last few months has been spent wedding planning - my fiance and I will be married next May, so I will then be Mrs. Sayles!
Here are a few of my favorite things - maybe we have something in common!
Favorite color: pink and purple
Favorite season: summer
Favorite food: peanut butter
Favorite book: Pete the Cat
Favorite movie: The Wizard of Oz
I can't wait to meet you all and get to know your first graders and families!
