Staff Sparklight - Connie Cozzolino
This week, Kellison Elementary is excited to feature one of our first grade teachers, Connie Cozzolino, in our Staff Sparklight.
Mrs. Cozzolino is from Ballwin and attended Parkway South High School. She has two brothers and one sister. Before going to college, Mrs. Cozzolino worked in the business field. Now, she has received her undergraduate degree from UMSL in elementary education, and her Master's degree in education from SBU. She has worked at Kellison for 18 of her 20 years in education.
Mrs. Cozzolino is married to her husband, John. They have three children, Nicole, Christy, and Austin, along with one cat, Tiny.
A Little More About Mrs. Cozzolino
What did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was little I was very active in gymnastics and wanted to be a professional gymnast. As I became older and had my first child, I realized how much I wanted to work with children and went back to college to become a teacher.
What are you most proud of?
I am most proud of my ability to persevere. I have overcome many obstacles in my life and always find a way to see the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!
What makes you happy?
Being home makes me happy – my husband has created a beautiful backyard oasis for our family to enjoy together
What is your favorite thing to do?
I love to swim and go to the gym. My family also knows that I love to turn on the radio and dance around the house, but my kids would never want anyone to know about this!
What is your favorite Kellison memory?
I have MANY Kellison memories that I hold dear to my heart. I have gotten to know so many families during my time here at Kellison and they have been the reason I have continued to stay here – thank you so much for making me feel loved!

Vision Van is on November 17, 2015. If you have a student whose vision you are concerned about, or a student with broken or missing glasses, please refer them to Nurse Eli.
As we begin to enter cold and flu season, please recall Rockwood guidelines regarding ill students staying home from school:
To reduce the spread of illness in our schools, we require students who are experiencing vomiting or diarrhea to stay home.
We also expect any student with a fever of 100 or higher to stay home until they have been fever-free for 24 hours or more, without the use of medication to reduce the fever.
Any unknown rashes are also a reason to stay home and consult your physician.
