My name is Aurora Snodell and I teach Geography for 6th grade and American History for 7th and 8th grade. I started my career here at KCIA as a first year teacher and am now going into my third year! I started college at Mizzou and graduated from UMKC in 2018 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Middle School Education. I am licensed to teach both ELA and Social Studies and am currently working towards getting ELL certified and a Master’s Degree in Language and Literacy through Park University. I’m an aunt to 7 amazing kiddos and am expecting my husband and I’s first child, a little girl, to arrive in November 2020! When I am not at school, I love to spend time with my family, friends, and of course my three crazy dogs! I can’t wait for yet another great year as a Phoenix!
