My name is Rachel Spotz and this is my second year in education. I spent my first year teaching 1st grade here at Kansas City International Academy. I graduated from University of Central Missouri in 2015. I have my Bachelors of Science Degree in Elementary Education. I am currently working to obtain my Master’s Degree in TESL at the University of Central Missouri. My family is one of the most important aspects of my life, along with my friends, and pets. I love being outdoors to explore nature, ride bikes, and go running. One thing I look forward to this school year is watching my student’s personal growth as well as academic.
