My name is Maaya Amin. This is my third 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. This year I am most excited about continuing to work with a knowledgeable and supportive staff. I look forward to learning from and working with our students, who come from a variety of rich cultural backgrounds, and watching them grow and explore things that are new to them! Outside of school I enjoy crafting, cooking/baking, exploring new things, catching up on TV shows and spending time with my loved ones!
