My name is Sarah Mundy (they/them) and this is my second year teaching 7th grade ELA at KCIA! I earned my B.A. and M.A. in English Literature, as well as an M.A. in Curriculum & Instruction, all from UMKC. My past roles have been Writing Specialist at UMKC, Academic Support Specialist at the Kansas City Art Institute, and adjunct college instructor for UMKC, Kansas City Kansas Community College, and Maple Woods Community College. My home with my partner Joel is in the historic Northeast Pendleton Heights neighborhood, complete with our seven pets and plant menagerie. I am a HUGE animal lover! I’m also enthusiastic about antiques and vintage fashion. I love reading with all my heart and lately my favorite authors are Maggie Nelson, Samuel Beckett, and Stephen King. I’m ready for the best year yet!
