Laura earned her Bachelors in International Studies and French from Murray State University and her Masters in International Relations from Webster University, where she earned the second A her professor had ever given out in 10+ years of teaching! Laura also worked with College Bound, where she accelerated 400 St. Louis high school students towards high school graduation and college acceptance. She joins Kairos from an assistant teaching position at EAGLE College Prep.
At Kairos, we believe now is the opportune moment to rethink public education. That's why we replace lectures with engaging projects and dictatorial "behavior managers" with 1-1 executive functioning coaches who help students learn how to manage their own schedule and work habits. Kairos students practice navigating real-world choices (such as when, where, how, and with whom to work) within a safe, supportive school environment. Kairos develops students not just into freethinkers, ready to thrive in a modern economy, but self-governing citizens, ready to lead both themselves and their communities.
