My name is Miriam Maqsood and I am a fifth grade teacher. This is my first year teaching at KCIA, but before I have had experience working in other classrooms across Kansas City. I graduated from the University of Missouri- Kansas City (UMKC) last spring with a Bachelor’s in 1-6 Elementary Education. I like to spend my time with friends and family. I also like to travel, try new foods, and solve puzzles. I am looking forward to getting to know students, staff and the community. I’m excited to have a great year at KCIA!
