My name is Maaya Amin and this is my first year teaching. I have worked in a preschool setting for many years as a part-time child care assistant and as a nanny for a wonderful family with three children while I was attending school. In May 2018, I graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City with my Masters of Art in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education. I am very excited to be at KCIA as a first year teacher and look forward to working with and learning from a very diverse group of students and staff members. When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, cooking, baking, DIY projects, going on walks and catching up on my favorite TV shows.
