My name is Meghan Badder and I have been in education for 6 years. I have a BA in Elementary Ed and a reading endorsement from Graceland University as well and a CLAD certificate from the University of Phoenix for teaching ELL students. This is my first year teaching at KCIA. Previously I have taught in a deaf/HOH preschool classroom, owned my own licensed home preschool in Rocklin, CA for 3 years, taught 4th and 5th grade at the Islamic School of Columbia MO and was lead Preschool Teacher at the Liberty La Petite Academy this past year. This year I look forward to working together with the families of my TK students to create a positive class community. My family consists of my supportive husband Josh, my 4 year old daughter Riley (who looks just like me) and my 2 boxer dogs Buddy and Sugar. In my free time I love being outside with my daughter, at a park or going somewhere fun like the zoo. I am so happy to be a part of the KCIA family and look forward to this year with great anticipation!
