Dr. Michael Kijowski is an adjunct instructor at the University of Delaware at the Georgetown Campus.  Dr. Kijowski teaches the three core math courses (MA 251, MA 252, & MA 253) to students majoring in elementary and/or special education.  These courses focus on the core content knowledge and pedagogy necessary for teaching K-5 mathematics.  Prior to his employment at the University of Delaware, Dr. Kijowski spent thirty years as an educator in the Christina and Caesar Rodney School Districts.  During his tenure, Dr. Kijowski was a teacher, assistant principal, principal, and supervisor of instruction for math & science.  Dr. Kijowski was honored as the 2004 Caesar Rodney School District’s Teacher-of-the-Year when he taught middle school mathematics.  As a school principal, Robert S. Gallaher Elementary School was awarded the National Blue Ribbon Award in 2010 for overall high achievement, and W.B. Simpson Elementary School was awarded the National Blue Ribbon Award in 2016 for significant gains in closing the achievement gap.  In his “retirement,” Dr. Kijowski remains a true teacher at heart; he cannot part with his extensive collection of children’s picture books and math manipulatives.  In addition, Dr. Kijowski has discovered the joy in cooking, gardening, pickleball, and, as always, remains an avid superhero fan.
