Hello, my name is Maya Coen. I will be co-teaching with Emily Brown in sixth grade math! This 2021-2022 school year will be my third year in education, but my first year as a teacher. My first two years, I served with City Year and was mentor/tutor at Central Middle School in a seventh grade math class and this summer I transitioned to Kansas City Teacher Residency to pursue my career in teaching. I received my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Central Missouri in Political Science and I am currently seeking a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Missouri – Kansas City. Some other facts: Proud to be biracial – my mom is born and raised in the Philippines and my dad was born and raised Kansas City, I play competitive slowpitch softball in my free time, hanging out with and being a cat mom to Dilly and Spero, traveling, and I lost 55 pounds in the last year, but still working to lose more.
