My name is Tera Kostelecky, currently from Lovell, WY. I have been all over the map of the western United States, landing me back into the Wyoming a few years ago. As I was ready to press forward with my education and experience and into the foundation of my future, I have been seeking a true “home.” I have found Lovell to be exactly that.
After graduating high school in Cody, Wyoming, I moved onto a small school where I began my educational journey with a new opportunity, alongside collegiate volleyball. It was this experience that transitioned my educational trail to Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana. This is where I earned my Bachelor of Art in Art K-12 Education. I truly enjoy being within schools as I continue my education through experience. Daily, it is challenging for me as students react in different ways to every situation. It takes a caring pure heart to become part of new prospering hearts; this is where I developed a passion for education through leadership roles.
After completing my student teaching in Bozeman, I continued my professional education within my hometown school district as a substitute and Para Educator. I realized then that I knew God had me exactly where I was supposed to be, reaching students in a new light. I found every experience to be rewarding in the ability to care about each individual. As I continued to grow as an educator, activities director, and coach, I continued to develop through the utilization of my education. It is my hope to see and reach even more hearts on a larger canvas as an educator here in Lovell; All-the-while, opening more doors to opportunities in my life and career, yes. But mostly to assist in fulfilling my passion- to help grow the kids of Lovell.
In my spare time, I enjoy staying involved with coaching as well as participating in athletic activities. I am also notorious for driving alongside beautiful creations in the foothills of His peaks listening to music, wondering how I am going to apply it into my own masterpiece. Anytime I watch a movie, I am questioned, “How in the world do you remember every line of every movie?” and although I haven’t seen them “all,” I do enjoy the art of production as well. I also love anytime I am blessed with spending time with my close friends, twin sister, older brother and sister, parents, and other family. If It is nice enough to be outside, I usually am! I love camping and hiking and water activities.
