Denise Kuske graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Pitzer College of the Claremont Colleges and a Masters of Education Degree from Claremont Graduate University, where she is currently a workshop instructor. Her 16 year teaching career began in Azusa Unified, where she taught upper elementary and was the school site GATE coordinator. Wanting to be closer to home to start a family, she began teaching with the Etiwanda School District. Within Eitwanda, she has taught across various grade levels from kindergarten to eighth grade at many different school sites. Mrs. Kuske has more recently acquired a second teaching credential in the area of Special Education from Chapman University. This has opened up a door to working as a specialist with various programs, including Etiwanda Alternative Studies, Home Hospital and private schools in the Etiwanda area. She is happily married with four children who also attend school in the Etiwanda School District. It is a wonderful community to be apart of and serve.
