Hi! My name is Tierney Solis and I am so excited to be the K-8 ELL Instructional Coach at KCIA. This will be my 9th year in education, during which I taught 1st, 4th, and 5th grade in Kansas City Kansas Public Schools. I completed my Bachelor’s from UMKC in 2013 and my Master’s in Urban Teacher Leadership and Instruction from UMKC in 2016. I am currently enrolled in UMKC and expect to complete my Ed. Specialist in K-12 Administration by 2023. In my spare time I love spending time with my husband and 2 daughters, Felicity (3) and Estella (1). We love cooking and eating together, finding new play places to explore, and relaxing at home with snacks and Netflix. I am looking forward to a great school year at KCIA!
