My name is Daisy Myrick; I am the Director of English Language Development at KCIA. I have worked in education since 2006, when I started as a teacher in Liberty, MO. Over the years, I have taught elementary and high school Spanish, 9th-12th gr ELA and Social Studies for English Learners, and worked as a K-12 ELL Program Coordinator. I have a bachelor’s degree in Political Science, with an emphasis in International Relations, and a minor in Spanish. I have a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction; Teaching English Learners. I am certified to teach Spanish K-12, and English Language Learners K-12. Outside of working at KCIA, I spend time with my husband and two daughters. I enjoy learning about other cultures, trying new restaurants, and reading. I am very excited for another wonderful year with our students and families!
