My name is Chase Cook, and I am a Special Education Interventionist + Teacher at Kansas City International Academy. I started my career in 2011 as a special education teacher at Central High School in Kansas City. I’ve spent eight years in education in Kansas City five years as a special education teacher + administrator, three years as a second grad. For two years, I coached bilingual elementary school teachers in Houston, TX. I studied Politics at Lake Forest College in Lake Forest, IL prior to joining Teach For America in 2011. In my free time, you’ll find me practicing yoga or teaching spin classes. I’m the proud dog dad of a Morkie named Ari and the proud uncle to 10 nieces/nephews.
