What types of qualities make her stand out?
Over the years, Mrs. Kalina has been a wonderful inspiration to me, as well as her students. She has innovative ways of teaching that are not boring. She is serious, silly and supportive in all of their works. She prays for them and helps them when they struggle with school work or even life in general. She is a wealth of goodness and understanding. Parents and students love her.
