The KPKG PTA has put together a "Teacher Tastes & Tidbits" questionnaire in an effort to collect information on teacher/staff likes, interests, etc. The questionnaire has been available to all Kings Park and Kings Glen staff but participation is purely optional, and staff are encouraged to share as much (or as little) information as they wish. The information provided is intended to be used by parents, staff, and others who may wish to acknowledge and/or thank a staff member. If you are looking for a staff member who is not listed, it means he/she has not filled out the questionnaire.
