Subjects Taught


I am a graduate of Alma College, located in central Michigan.  I majored in Mathematics and I minored in History.  I also hold a Masters Degree in Secondary Education from the University of Indiana (Go Hoosiers!).


I have been teaching at Union Township School Corporation since 2009.  I was hired right after I graduated college and I’ve been teaching math ever since.  I will most likely retire 30 years from now from Wheeler High School – this school is such a fantastic place to teach given the students, the personalities, the administration, and how much the community values a strong education.  Although I grew up in central Michigan, I now consider Northwest Indiana my home.


Welcome!  You have found Mr. Kosal’s school web page.  At Wheeler High School, I teach Algebra 1, Algebra Enrichment, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus.  I am willing to do anything in my power to make sure I get as much mathematics in my students’ heads as possible.  I get to school extremely early in the mornings; likewise, I leave school very late in the evening.  If extra help is ever needed, I am always willing to help, whenever it may be!  All you have to do is ask :)  

I happily devote much of my free time to coaching cross country and track and field.  Running is my passion – I hope to continue teaching students the love of running for many years to come.
