My name is Lauren True and I am the sixth grade Reading teacher. I graduated from University of Missouri- Kansas City in 2009, and I have Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication. I worked as a Financial Aid Coordinator and Compliance Coordinator for six years at Pinnacle Career Institute, but I always knew my heart was in teaching. I went back to school in 2014, and I graduated from University of Central Missouri in December 2016 with my Master’s Degree in Education. I also have my Certification in English Language Arts (ELA). I started working at Kansas City International Academy right after I graduated in December as an ELA co-teacher and fell in love with the school and students! I have an 18-month old daughter named Maddie, and she is the light of my life! I enjoy reading, running, going to the movies, cooking, and spending time with family and friends. I can’t wait for an awesome year at KCIA!
