Brittney Kornow

Meet Mrs. Kornow (Mrs. K)

I am so excited to be your child's first grade teacher! Here are a few things about me . . .


How do you pronounce your last name?

Kornow is pronounced corn-now. Most of the students just call me Mrs. K. :) 


What is your teaching experience?

While receiving my multiple subjects teaching credential, I taught second and fourth grade in the Berkeley School District. Thereafter, I taught second grade in East Palo Alto and then found my home at Springhill Elementary School where I have taught both second and first grade. I have training in Teachers College Reading and Writing Workshop as well as have experience facilitating activities and lessons associated with the California Common Core State Standards. I am very excited to continue to be a part of the Springhill community and look forward to getting to know you and your family! 


Who is in your family?

My husband, French Bulldogs (Hugo and Tubbers), and I live in Oakland, CA. Education is a priority in our household as he is a teacher as well. 


What are your hobbies?

Outside of teaching I enjoy many activities. I love to travel! My husband and I have been to 14 countries! I also like to go to the movies, practice yoga, go to the beach, and hike.
