Samantha graduated from the University of Missouri with a Bachelors in Psychology and Criminology and Masters in Elementary Education. She’s an alumnus of Teach for America, experienced Learning Support Specialist, and comes to Kairos from EAGLE College Prep, where she was the Upper Academy English & Language Arts Lead Teacher. At EAGLE, she developed the Master ELA curriculum district-wide by introducing standards-based lesson plans.
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.
