My name is Maaya Amin. This is my fifth year teaching at KCIA. I graduated from UMKC with a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction for Early Childhood Education, and have recently acquired a TESOL certification. This year I am most excited to experience Transitional Kindergarten and help students gain foundational skills both academically and social-emotionally to support Kindergarten readiness; I look forward to allowing students to learn through play and hands-on activities. I am also excited to work in partnership with Ms. Bell. In my spare time outside of school I crafting, cooking/baking, exploring new things, catching up on TV shows, traveling and spending time with my loved ones!
