About Me

Greetings splendid First Grader Families! I am so excited to start the school year off! I will be your child’s first grade teacher and I would love to tell you about myself. This year will be my fourth year teaching. This is will be my third year year at 107th Street School. I graduated from Campbell University in North Carolina where I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education. I absolutely love school and I can’t wait to pass my passion for learning to you!


I was born in Los Angeles. When I am not teaching or planning awesome things for us to do at school, I enjoy reading, hiking with my two dogs, shopping, dining out and spending time with my family and friends.


Parents and guardians, I look forward to getting to know your child and supporting them in learning. Parents are a child’s original teacher and are the largest influence on their life. I am looking forward to working alongside parents and students to help our scholars reach and surpass their learning goals. 



Mrs. Kovalev
