Welcome Students & Parents! I'm Mr. Kumar Kayastha, and I am the Technology Integration Specialist, here at Westchester Primary School (Westchester SD 92.5):
 
I will be posting resources here, as well as a variety of links and pertinent information. Please feel free to come to me with any questions, concerns, or issues you may have. I love to hear, watch, or read your thoughts!
 

I believe it's paramount that as educators, we give our students the tools and guidance necessary to be productive, well-rounded scholars! This is my first year in this district! Here is some background information I'd like to share: I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Rhetoric from the University of Illinois (Urbana/Champaign), my Master of Arts in Secondary Education (Content Area: English Language Arts) with a specialty in Reading Assessment & Instruction from Lewis University, and my Middle School Endorsement from the University of Phoenix. I am currently pursuing my Technology Specialist Endorsement from the University of St. Francis and I am a Google Level I certified Instructor.

 

I employ the use of technology amongst staff and students to promote learning, creativity, and collaborative teaching. I strive to connect with all students to focus on critical thinking and real-world application. By successfully modeling positive behavior and growth mindset, both as a teacher and a student, I believe that our community (in and around Westchester) can be molded into an even more welcoming and innovative educational environment than it already is.

 

"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education." -Martin Luther King, Jr.
