My name is Jennifer Marker and this is my 4th year at KCIA. I taught 5th grade for two years and this is my second year with a great 3rd grade team. I am thrilled to be teaching with Julie Horn. I graduated from Avila University in 2003 and I was an ELL paraprofessional in Blue Springs for 12 years before joining the Kansas City Teacher Residency. I have a Master’s Degree in Urban Education through Park University. I have a wife and two young children so whatever free time I do have I enjoy spending with them, going on walks, watching football, and cooking.
