I’m Mr. Cleary, and this is my first year at K.C.I.A., and my first year as a professional educator. I am a masters degree student at Park University studying urban education, and a member of Kansas City Teachers Residency; a teacher preparatory program focusing on training educators to work in urban environments. I am also an actor around town working in theater, commercial, and print genres. In my free time I enjoy reading, creating music, teaching voice and acting lessons, and building/making all sorts of things. My wife and I live in the northland and just welcomed our first child, a boy, in May of 2018! I am in 5th. grade this year observing my mentor teacher Mrs. Horn! I am sure we are going to have an awesome year!
