My name is Gracie Larcher and I am excited to say this will be my first year teaching. I am originally from Phoenix, Arizona but spent the last four years living in Lawrence, Kansas attending the University of Kansas (rock chalk!). In May I graduated with distinction from KU, earning my degree in elementary education. This year at KCIA I will be teaching first grade and could not be more thrilled. I have an undeniable passion for education and it is my goal to help instill a love for learning within each of my students. The only things I am more passionate about than teaching are KU basketball and my 14 year old schnoodle, Snickers.
