My name is Brooke Monsees and I am the 6th grade Guided Reading Teacher at KCIA. I started my career in education in 2013 through the Early Headstart Program as a classroom teacher and Partner Advocate Liaison. In 2018 I completed my teaching certificate in Elementary Ed and found a home at KCIA as a substitute teacher and later a MS Guided Reading Assistant. This will be my second year leading 6th Grade Guided Reading for KCIA. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Child Life from University of Missouri, 1-6 Teaching Certificate from Central Methodist University, and am currently working towards my Masters in Reading and Literacy with an ELL emphasis from Park University. Outside of school I love to read, travel, bake, planning projects on Pinterest, and spend time with my family.
