My name is Helen Broome and this is my 25th year in education. I have experience teaching Kindergarten – 4th grade. This is my 4th year teaching Kindergarten ELL at KCIA. (Kindergarten is my favorite grade to teach!) I taught in Kansas City Kansas Public Schools for 16 years and also at Genesis Promise Academy and Academy for Integrated Arts. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education from Northwest Missouri State University. I also have a Masters Degree in Education from Mid America Nazarene University.
My husband Mark and I have 3 children and a dog named Winter. Jessica is a senior in high school. Matthew is in 7th grade and Zoe is in 5th grade. My husband and I spend a lot of time driving them to their various activities: dance, piano and gymnastics. I am active in my church. I am the director of the youth group and I sing in the choir. In my free time I enjoy reading and watching reality t.v!
I am so excited about this year at KCIA!
