Welcome to a new school year!
Biography – Ms. Kozubal (ka-zoo-bull) (It’s Polish!)
This is my 27th year of teaching high school students! It is my 21st year teaching at Ironwood Ridge. I have been teaching at IRHS since it opened in 2001. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Arizona and then returned to earn a Master’s Degree in Teaching and Teacher Education. I am certified by the state of Arizona to teach Social Studies at the secondary level. .
I lived in Germany for five years and have traveled widely in Western Europe, including recent educational trips to Normandy, Poland, Hungary, Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Great Britain, France, Switzerland, Ireland and the Netherlands. I have spent seven summers taking students abroad to experience some of the history they are learning in the classroom. There is no better teacher than travel!
This year, I will be taking students on a long-awaited trip to JAPAN! More info to follow...
My previous experience includes serving as Japanese Club Sponsor, Social Studies Department Chair, National Honor Society Advisor, four years on the Teacher Advisory Council to the Superintendent (TAC), and five years co-sponsoring the IRHS History Club.
