Welcome to Room 219!

My name is Mr. Kost and this is my third year teaching 3rd grade. Before teaching I worked as a program coordinator for Playworks, so I enjoy bringing fun and energy into my classroom to help engage students.  I believe that teaching is an art form and I try my best to always keep students invested in their learning. My goal as a teacher is not to transfer the knowledge I have to them, but instead empower the students to find the brilliance they hold inside themselves. Working hard and thinking critically are my goals in my classroom. 

             I recently received my masters in teaching from the University of Minnesota. Prior to that I went to Monmouth College where I played basketball and soccer and received my degree in business administration. In my free time I enjoy being outside and playing sports. I’m originally from Northern Wisconsin, but don’t worry I’m not a Parkers fan.
