Hi There! My name is Amy Walsh. I am the special education teacher for grades Kindergarten through sixth grade at KCIA this year. I have been a special education teacher for seventeen years. For over a decade I have been working with students in co-taught classrooms and in the resource room for grades K-8 at KCIA. I believe that every child can learn, no matter their challenges. A disability does not define a child—it empowers them to work toward their strengths. My husband is a school social worker in the Shawnee Mission School District and we have 2 amazing children of our own, and our cat Boo- Kitty. Raymore, Missouri has been our home for seventeen years. We enjoy performing for our family band (TheJackSnaps.com), watching movies (Star Wars), reading (Vampire Stories), and playing board games (Clue).
