My name is Brooke Rush and this is my 6th year at KCIA. I grew up in a small town in mid-Missouri and attended the University of Missouri for college. I started my career at KCIA as a full-time sub, taught 6th grade Guided Reading for 4 years, and will be starting my second year as a 2nd grade teacher. I love getting to learn about the many different cultures of our KCIA students and am excited for another great year with KCIA! Outside of teaching I enjoy reading, spending time with my husband David, my bonus son Declan, and our dog Hurley.
