My name is Courtney Minnich and this is my seventh year in education. I spent the last six years in Liberty, Missouri as a third grade teacher. I graduated from Kansas State University in 2011. I have my Bachelors of Science Degree in Elementary Education and I am also licensed to teach English as a Second Language (ESL) to grades K-12. I graduated from Northwest Missouri State with my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership K-12 and I am currently working on my Masters Degree in TESL at the University of Central Missouri. While I was at K-State, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Guatemala for a summer and teach English to K-1 students. Spending time with my family and friends is a big part of my life and I also enjoy reading, cooking, walking my dog, and traveling. I am looking forward to a great year at KCIA!
