My name is Emma Fundenberger. I am joining the first-grade team and will be coteaching with Katie Distastio. I graduated from UMKC in May of 2021 with my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education. Currently, I am completing my Master’s in Reading at Northwest Missouri State University. I completed my student teaching experience at KCIA. I am incredibly excited to see familiar faces and to meet new ones. When I am not at school I enjoy reading, cooking, working on home projects, and hanging out with friends and family. I love exploring the city and trying new experiences. I am looking forward to a school year of learning and growth!
