Meet Our Instructors
Hello! My name is Elizabeth Mazur.
I have been teaching at Kent Transition Center since 2002. I began teaching in the Hospitality classroom then I taught 4 years in Business IT and now I am in Early Childhood Careers.
After I graduated from high school I worked and went to college. It took me a while, 20 years in a variety of Restaurant’s & Businesses, but finally I achieved my dream job – Teaching! I am married and have 3 boys and one girl. I am also a Grandma. J
My favorite thing about being a teacher
My favorite thing about being a teacher is getting to know my students and supporting them while they work toward their dreams. I enjoy teaching student’s new things, challenging them to grow in their learning, be kind to everyone and to make a difference.
My favorite thing about KTC
Kent Transition Center gives students hands-on opportunities to explore several career options before leaving High School, which is the greatest benefit to enrolling at KTC. Students also have the opportunity to meet students from all over Kent County, be a role model as part of our leadership team and contribute to our community.
