My name is Gracie Larcher and this will be my fourth year teaching first grade at KCIA. I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from the University of Kansas in 2017 and this past May I graduated from the University of Central Missouri with a master’s in English Language Learners. I have an undeniable passion for education and it is my goal to help instill a love for learning within each of my students. When I am not working I enjoy cooking, painting, and spending time with my dog, Junie B. Bones. I am so excited to be spending another wonderful school year in my happy place (KCIA).
