Instructor Profile

My name is Dr. Kathryn Kotowski and I am a part-time instructor at Cuyamaca in both the Exercise Science and the Child Development Department; where I have been teaching since the spring of 2001.

My master’s degree is in curriculum and instruction from San Diego State University. My Doctorate is from Nova Southeastern University in Florida, where I focused my research on reading instruction. I have taught in both public and private elementary schools for the past 20+ years and for 10 years I worked as the principal of a kindergarten to 8th grade school in the area. Recently I have returned to the classroom and am teaching half time in a second grade classroom! I am thrilled to be back in the classroom again working with students who are excited to be learning! On my days off I supervise a few student teachers each semester at local San Diego County elementary schools. Most of my classes here at Cuyamaca are taught online but every once in awhile I get a chance to teach a face to face class. I love both formats and see advantages to both types of learning. I have been married to my husband for over 30 years, we have identical twin daughters, 2 wonderful son-in-laws, two grand-dudes (with one more on the way), and 3 grand-chicks all under 5! We also have a son who is a student here at Cuyamaca and 1 more daughter in high school. I love reading, collecting sea glass, walking, and shopping! Welcome to online learning!
