Meet the CALS Paraeducators

Karen Kundratic

Mrs. KundraticI have been part of the Lutherville Timonium area for my entire life.  After earning a bachelor’s degree from Towson State University, I married and started my family.  We moved to the TES area in 1992.

I have been a part of Timonium Elementary School since my oldest daughter started kindergarten here in 1993.  Over the years, I have volunteered in the classrooms, served as a room mom and held officer positions on the PTA board.  I began working as a Paid Parent Helper for the CALS classrooms in 1996.  In December of 2000, I accepted the position of Instructional Assistant and worked with the preschool program.  The following year I moved to the intermediate CALS classroom and have been here ever since!

Amy McCusker

Mrs. McCuskerI grew up in the Bowley’s Quarters area. Seneca Creek was my beautiful view! I spent 7 years teaching preschool, in Baltimore City, after obtaining my certification in Early Childhood Education from CCBC.

In 1998, I married the love of my life, Joseph McCusker, who is a BCPS science teacher, at Sudbrook Magnet Middle School.

After teaching preschool, in 2005, I joined my husband at Sudbrook. My first position was as an additional adult assistant. The following year, I was promoted to an inclusion paraeducator.

And now another chapter begins here at Timonium Elementary. I was delighted to accept a position, as a paraeducator, within the CALS program. I am so happy to be a part of the TES family!
