Hello My Name Is...
Welcome to the wonderful world of middle school! :) My name is Ms. Troxtel and I teach a variety of classes here at KMS. I teach ELA 7/8 and Ancient History in Room 212. I co-teach with Ms. Codispoti for one hour a day integrating a new literacy program called iLit for 8th graders in Room 302. Additionally, I co-teach a 7th grade ELA class with Mrs Meister in Room 307.
I received my Bachelor's degree from Eastern Illinois University in 2006. I double majored in both Special Education and Elementary Education with an emphasis in Behavioral Studies. My first teaching job was at a middle school in Evanston, Illinois. I taught ELA and Social Studies there for three years. I moved to Michigan in 2009 and began working in Hamtramck here at KMS. This is my 8th year of teaching at KMS. Four years ago, I obtained my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Mary Grove College in Detroit. I will continue my education throughout my professional career in order to serve as a role model for my students and also to stay current with new and innovative practice related to the teaching field.
I am passionate about teaching and there is nothing in the world I would rather do. It is my goal to provide a safe, nurturing environment for all of my students to learn and succeed. I try to incorporate humor into my lessons to promote an engaging space for students to love learning. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me on my website or via e-mail.
