Marnae Chavers expands her role at Kairos after serving as our Instructional Director for grades 5-6. Among Marnae’s proudest accomplishments was building a team with a strong culture and sense of connectedness. Her previous experience includes serving as Science Department Chair at KIPP Texas, as Content Coordinator for Teach for America, and as Data Coordinator for the Abu Dhabi Education Council.
Born and raised in north St. Louis, Marnae is a yoga, wellness, and plant enthusiast. She graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a B.S. in Human Development and Family Studies and from Johns Hopkins University with a Master’s in Education.
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.
