Background: Grew up in Saint Paul, MN and attended K-12 in the Twin Cities. Attended the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities and earned my Bachelors of Science in Youth Studies with a minor in African & African American Studies
Current: Moved to Kansas City, MO four years ago and started teaching at the Ewing Marion Kauffman School. Stayed there for two years as a 6th Grade Math Teacher. While employed there, I earned my Masters of Education at the University of Missouri - Saint Louis with emphasis on Elementary Education (1-6). Currently earning another Masters in Educational Administration through the University of Kansas.
This year we will focus heavily on three traits
I believe that these are big in the 4th grade and together as a 4th grade class we will be exploring what different types of respect looks like, how we can become a community and what it looks to be a sef-confident 4th graders in preparation for the 5th grade!
Your student will be held to high academic and behavioral expectations all grounded in the belief that they can and will succeed.
I am extremely excited to be working with the scholars here at University Academy and am predicting an excellent year!
