Wow! What an amazing and wonderful beginning of the school year we are having here at KCAA!! It is an honor and a privilege to be in this great community for the second year, as the ELA S Teacher in 3rd and 4th grade. I am very fortunate to be able to work with my students and my families from last year. All of our students are so very eager to learn, to be successful, to achieve, and to demonstrate their artistic talents. This is going to be a fantastic school year, filled with new learning, so much knowledge, so much creativity, and great fun. You all are the reason why Kunsmiller Creative Arts Academy is so very amazing.
