About Ms. Kosmal
I was born in Huntington Beach, CA and moved to the bay area in 1995 to attend UC Berkeley. I graduated in 1999 with a Bachelor’s in Social Welfare, with an emphasis in psychology.
I fell in the love with the Bay Area and began working at St. Mary’s College High School in Berkeley as a Spanish teacher and Cross Country coach.
In 2004 I went back to school and received a Master’s Degree in Counseling from Sonoma State University.
In 2007, I began working as a counselor, teacher, and coach at St. Patrick St. Vincent High School in Vallejo.
And in 2014 I joined the St. Patrick’s faculty! I teach Spanish from Kinder - 8th grade and serve as the school counselor.
Fun Facts about Ms. Kosmal:
I have four children – Taylor, Tony, Olivia, & Alexa. (Alexa and I had the same due date, but I was born a week early on my mom’s birthday and she was born a week later on her brother’s birthday!)
Being the daughter of a flight attendent I have traveled to many countries and can’t wait for another opportunity to come my way.
I enjoy being active - running, swimming, biking, hiking, gardening (most activities outside make me happy!) My most memorable activities include the Trans Tahoe Relay (one boat, six girls, and ten miles of Lake Tahoe) and Ragnar Relay (Golden Gate Park to Calistoga).
I lived in Chile for five months.
I consider myself a SloMex – half Slovakian and half Mexican. I love the Mexican culture and I hope to travel to Bratislava one day to learn more about my father's culture!
