My name is Kate Bowles and I have been teaching since 2000. I received my Bachelors of Science Degree in Elementary Education and a Masters degree from the University of Kansas. I have taught second and third grade, gifted education, and am a certified library media specialist. This will mark my first year as a reading interventionist, and I am very excited to begin this school year in a new roll. I feel very lucky to be part of Kansas City International Academy, and I am looking forward to helping these special students learn and grow.
