My name in Erin Opara and I am a middle school instructional coach and cross country coach at Kansas City International Academy. This is my second year working at Kansas City International Academy and I am so excited to continue to work with our students, families, and staff! I have previously served as a middle school teacher, elementary teacher, instructional coach and vice principal! I earned a Bachelor’s degree from Nebraska Wesleyan University, Master’s of Education degree for UMSL, Education Specialist degree from UMKC and am currently pursuing my Doctor of Education at UMKC. I like learning! Outside of school I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends! My husband and I are expecting the arrival of our son in 2023!
