About

Hello! My name is Justin "Mr. K" Klyczek. I am a former teacher- yes, that's right. I hung it up to become a Software Support technician at Five Star Technology Solutions. Five Star is a company that works with schools to make the lives of teachers and administrators easier so I'm not entirely away from education. As I continue my journey, I wanted a place where people could catch up with me.
