Name: Karl Osicki
Grade Level: 1st Grade
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. I am thrilled to be a part of the Dublin Elementary first grade team! I have a background in global markets with the financial world and a Masters in Educational Equity and Diversification. I now have been teaching for 6 years and always held a passion for education. I can honestly say I have found my true calling in education and look forward to every morning that I can inspire young minds to think big! I have had many opportunities to reach, encourage and motivate students with diverse learning styles. I currently hold the role of a Next Generation Science core lead teacher, in which I assist in developing best practices in science curriculum for the district. With this position, I deliver presentations and learning sessions to other teachers and admistrators in the district. I am also able to work closely with my grade level team to teach and model best practices for science so that we can better prepare our students. Additionally, I teach a STEM coding class for 1st through 3rd graders with DPIE after school on Thursday's, check back for that next trimester. Here is a write up on the sucess of the class: CLICK ME
I currently live in Walnut Creek with my wife, who is a second grade teacher, and my two wonderful boys Owen (11) and Ryder (8), and our dog August.
