Hello 6/7 Families!
My name is Amy Koepke (think kep(t) the key) and I teach sixth grade Reading and Writing as well as one seventh grade shared class where I am the Reading teacher and Mrs. Sharon Papale is the Writing teacher. This is my 30th year of teaching! That seems impossible to me, but I have really been with RSD #17 for that long. I have taught at the HKMS for the past 5 years and love the fast pace almost as much as the age group. I have lived in Killingworth most of my life and love bumping into families all over the state (and sometimes in less likely places). I have a grown daughter who has finished college and moved on to sunny Philladelphia, and my son just started 9th grade at HKHS where he says things are quite different. I also live with my good-natured husband, Keith, and a lovable but very fresh little cat named Tom. We spend lots of time traveling and experiencing the world around us. I look forward to getting to know you and your families; this looks to be a wonderful group!
I contact families each time we move to a new unit and alert you via email when there are important updates, long term projects, or work that may need attention at home. This year I will be using Microsoft 365 "Teams" to help students and families be informed about my class.en House I will be able to let you know how this tool works.
Don't hesitate to contact me- Email is best, but you can also call the school.
