Hello! My name is DJ Kukielka and I am an ESL teacher working with 2nd and 3rd grade. During English instruction, I help students develop academic language through the content of science and social studies. This is my second year at Emerson and my ninth year teaching, overall. I love teaching and am grateful for the opportunity to work with students at Emerson!
