My name is Amber Sahr and this is my 11th year in education. I spent one year teaching special education preschool in the Joplin, Mo school district and the last 10 years with DLECS/KCIA where I have taught 3rd grade for 7 years and this is my 4th year teaching kindergarten. I graduated from Pittsburg State University in 2004 with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Elementary Education and I am able to teach children from birth to grade 6. In the spring of 2018, I will begin working on my masters degree for literacy through UCM. I enjoy watching my son play football for Lee’s Summit High School, golfing with my husband, spending time with my parents and 2 dogs, Riley and Tulsa and traveling to the beach. I am so exited to make this year the best year at KCIA!
