My name is Maaya Amin. This is my fourth year at KCIA as a Kindergarten teacher. I graduated with my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction for Early Childhood Education from UMKC. While completing my degree I worked as a preschool childcare assistant for several years and a nanny. I recently completed my TESOL certification.This year I am most excited about being back in the classroom and being able to physically work with my students in person. I look forward to building relationships with my students and growing my skills as a teacher. I enjoy watching my students, grow and explore things that are new to them and share their knowledge with their peers! Outside of school I enjoy crafting, cooking/baking, exploring new things, catching up on TV shows and spending time with my loved ones!
