My name is Elena Koslan. This year will be my fifth year at St. Rita, and I will be the 5th & 6th grade, Science teacher. I have 13 years of teaching experience with the Diocese of Dallas, of which the last 10 years I have taught 5-8 Science. Science is such a fun and engaging subject, so I love teaching with hands-on activities and relating it to the real world allowing students to gain a deeper understanding.
I graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas and received my Bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with an emphasis in Education and Psychology. While at UTD, I also earned my Master of Arts in Teaching Science Education.
I was born and raised in the Dallas area. I proudly attended Catholic Schools from kindergarten through 12th grade. In addition to being a science nerd, I also enjoy cooking, crafting, visiting with family and friends, and most of all traveling the world. I have visited a majority of the United States as well as over 15 foreign countries. I look forward to an exciting new school year!
