Kim Kaminski (l), the Strongsville PTA's 2016-17 Outstanding District Educator with Kinsner Elementary School Principal Adam Marino.

BW School of Education graduate and inspiring teacher Kim Kaminski was recently recognized by the Strongsville Council PTA as the "Outstanding District Educator."

The PTA praised Kaminski for a "knowledge of subject matter, command of the curriculum and awareness of standards [that] are so high they are constant and silent givens, like a set scale that must be in place before music can be made."

Kaminski, a third grade teacher at Kinsner Elementary, has been teaching in the Strongsville, Ohio district for 27 years. 

Hitting all the high notes

"It is quite an honor to receive this award from PTA because it comes from the parents," she told The Post. "I am honored to represent the Strongsville teachers and staff that work alongside of me every day. We are a district of strong teachers, and you are only as good as the team you work with."

As reported on cleveland.com, the PTA summed up Kaminski's classroom approach this way: "Time and again, Mrs. Kaminski hits all the high notes – instilling a love of learning, customizing tactics to reach students individually, inventing fun ways to teach important concepts, and much more.”
