  • Hello!

    My name is Mrs. Kneeland (formerly Miss Klauk:) ). I have been teaching Special Education classes in Buffalo since 2011 ranging from grades k-5. I had a wonderful first year at Southside Elementary as a grade 4 co-teacher but I have been teaching at Grabiarz since 2012, and feel so lucky to be here, because I love my students and my school! I am currently teaching grade 5 and it has been a pleasure.

    When I am not teaching I love to spend time with my husband, our 1 1/2 year old daughter Riley, and our dog Dolly. Our favorite things to do together are playing outside and cooking.


  • In regards to our new "temporary normal" .... we are all in this together. Stay safe, stay healthy and I can't wait to see the kiddos when we come back to school!


    I will be posting weekly resources/ activities for your fifth grader to do on this teacher page, and checking in via dojo or phonecall or e-mail each week. Starting this week I will be setting up folders for each subject with suggested activies for your fifth grader to complete throughout the week. Do what you can, when you can, and please don't hesitate to reach out with questions. Also thank you for your patience, while we navigate online learning together! 


    • Families of students in grades 3-8 will be able to pick up 1:1 devices (Ipads)  on April 21st from 8:30 - 3:30 at Grabiarz.
