Hello Kilby Tigers

My name is Mrs. Geschke. This is my first year as an ESOL teacher. I have been a classroom teacher for 11 years in 1st-3rd grade and this is my 10th year at Kilby. I am currently working with English Language Learners in 1st grade. I hope you and your family are staying safe and enjoying time together. Here are some resources below to help you continue your learning while we are away. 

Please let me know if you have any questions or need assistance with the resources. Also, feel free to send me an email just to say hello! I do miss my Kilby family and I hope you have a wonderful summer break!
