Hello, my name is Megan Jefferson. I am in my seventh year as a special education teacher. This year, I am so excited to join the Kansas City International Academy community! In 2013, I graduated with my Bachelors degree from Rutgers University. I then received my Masters degree in Special Education in 2015 from the University of Missouri St. Louis. I am an alumna of Teach for America and a part of the Green Fellowship here in Kansas City to develop in educational leadership. Prior to this year, I have had the joy of teaching both here in Kansas City and in Baltimore, Maryland. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, running, hiking, traveling, and working on art projects.
