My name is Maria Koch, and I teach 2nd grade ELA and the Kindergarten STEM Activity class at Oconee Primary School. I started teaching in 2003, and I have taught 2nd-5th grades in California and Georgia. I love helping students develop creative thinking skills, integrating technology into the classroom, and working on projects that incorporate STEM skills. I am married to my wonderful husband, Evan, and we have two daughters and two sons. I am so excited to get to know your child and to learn and grow alongside each one!
