My name is Karia Tucker and this is my first year teaching. I graduated from the University of Central Missouri on May 5, 2018 with my Bachelors of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education. Although this is my official first year teaching since I’ve graduated, I have taught ages Birth – 8th grade throughout the past 6 years. I also teach Bible Study on Wednesdays at my church. I am currently working on my Masters Degree at the University of Central Missouri. During my free time, I like to spend time with family, friends, cook, and shop. I am also a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated. This year I am very excited to see how much I learn with my students and how much we progress we make.
