My name is Sally Beran and this is my 16th year in education. I spent the last 15 years as a journalism and photography teacher in Kansas City and am at KCIA as a writing and reading interventionist. I graduated in 2001 with a bachelors degree in Agricultural Journalism and 2004 with a Masters in Education. Before becoming a teacher, I was a reporter/writer for various newspapers, magazines, and advertising agencies. In addition to education, my passions include spending as much time as possible with my husband of 14 years and my 3 children, teaching health and fitness courses, running a baseball academy with my family, snuggling with my dogs, and traveling to see family. I came to KCIA because I believe in helping all children reach their full potential and I can see being here, I will be able to reach mine!
