Hello! My name is Olivia Beck and I am a first grade teacher at Kansas City International Academy. This is my first year as a teacher. Last year I completed my student teaching in both Lawrence and Topeka, Kansas. I graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in Elementary Education and am currently working towards my masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction through KU. I am originally from Scottsdale, Arizona. In Arizona I lived with my mom, dad, two older sisters, and a dog named Daisy. I have a French Bulldog puppy at home named Louie that I love very much! I enjoy reading and exercising in my free time. I am so excited to begin my first year of teaching here at KCIA!
