Mrs. Strykowski is excited and pleased to be returning to JMIS for this school year to teach her favorite class, 8th grade history. She taught at JMIS for 18 years and prior to that worked in banking. She has a BA in history from one of her home state universities, SUNY at Buffalo, and an MBA from SF State. History is a lifelong passion which she communicated to her son who has a PhD in history, and to her daugher, a librarian, and she hopes to share some of that with her students. She can often be seen walking in Moraga with friends, or at the movies.
