My name is Dara McGraw and I am working alongside Mrs.Berry in 5th grade this year. I moved to Kansas City from Atlanta, which is where my family still resides. This is my 2nd year in education. Last year I was a Teacher’s Aid at Oakhill Day School in Pre-K and this is my first year at KCIA. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Midwestern College in Intercultural Studies. During the years I was earning my undergraduate degree, I had several opportunities to live abroad and work with different languages in Uganda, Indonesia, and Nepal. When I’m not in the classroom, I like exploring Kansas City with my friends. I also enjoy running, CrossFit, traveling, hiking, learning new languages, and cooking. I am looking forward to my first year at KCIA and being part of such an incredible school that celebrates diversity so well!
