My name is Lauren Sharp and this is my second year at Kansas City International Academy. I graduated from Missouri Western State University in December. I have my Bachelors of Science Degree in Elementary Education and I am also licensed to teach Special Education to grades K-12. I am currently working on my Masters Degree in TESL at the University of Central Missouri. I enjoy hunting and fishing with my family and love to travel the world. I enjoy watching sports, cooking, and gardening. I have 2 step children and a wonderful fiance. I am looking forward to a great year at KCIA!
