My name is Miriam Maqsood and I am a fifth grade teacher. This is my second year teaching at KCIA. Before becoming a teacher at KCIA, I have had experience working in other classrooms across Kansas City. I graduated from the University of Missouri- Kansas City (UMKC) with a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education. I am currently working on my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction at UMKC. I like to spend my time with friends and family. I also like to travel and try new places around KC. I’m excited to have another great year at KCIA!
