Mrs. Mara Kolke

Hello and welcome to East Elementary! My name is Mrs. Kolke and I will be your child’s fourth grade teacher this year. I am looking forward to having a great school year with both you and your child. 

I was born and raised in Kentucky. I moved to the area almost two years ago, due to my husband being in the military. We do not have any children, but we do have two dogs, Oakley and Rufus. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, as well as being outdoors. I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Western Kentucky University. I am certified in both Kentucky and Missouri to teach. This will be my second year teaching and working in the Waynesville district. 

I cannot wait to work with your child this year! We are going to have an amazing year in fourth grade! Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
