My name is Mrs. Kara Kosinski.  I am a 1995 graduate of Portville Central and I am so excited to be back here working at my alma mater!  I graduated in 1999 from SUNY Geneseo with a Bachelor's Degree and Certification in Special Education and Elementary Education.  In 2004 I completed my Master's Degree in Special Education from Buffalo State College.  I have been teaching since 1999 and love special education!  Getting the opportunity to work closely with so many unique children is very rewarding! 
     I live in Olean with my husband and two children.  I love to read, play softball, spend time with my family and friends, and try out new hobbies.
