Hello, my name is Sara DeGarmo. I am so excited to begin my journey at KC International Academy as part of the kindergarten team. I started working with kindergarteners and third graders during my senior year of high school in Liberty, Missouri where I was fortunate enough to take a tour of KCIA. I knew from the moment I walked in that I wanted to teach at this school at some point. I am most excited to build relationships with everyone I come into contact with. I graduated in May from Missouri Western State University in Saint Joseph Missouri. I worked at a daycare as a 2 year old teacher and a rotating teacher. I student taught in Liberty, Missouri as a kindergarten teacher where I found a love for kindergarten. I found a passion for teaching as a child because I loved taking care of my younger siblings. I am the second of 5 kids and was always the “little mama”. I started coaching younger cheer teams as soon as I was allowed to. I love working with children and knew I wanted to work with kids most of my life. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends when I am not at school, but I am so excited to start my first year as a kindergarten teacher!
