My name is Jamie Jansen and this is my 18th year in education. I have taught many grades from 1st through 12th, served as a behavior interventionist, academic interventionist and a Special Education Teacher. I graduated from Northwest Missouri State University with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. I received my Masters of Education from Lesly University and my Educational Specialist in Information and Learning Technologies from the University of Missouri. I am married and have two children, Michael (6) and Aleena (9). Along with my children we have a dog named Gilbert, 2 hamsters and 2 parakeets. In my free time I love to spend time with my family and friends, play Volleyball, and shop. I am so excited to join the KCIA team and work with the best educators in Kansas City!
