Mrs. Kinney was initially drawn to Equitas 6 years ago because she shares the belief that college is for ALL students. She is a graduate of Evangel University, a small private college in Springfield, Missouri. While there, she earned a teaching credential and Bachelor of Science in Elementary and Middle School Education while gaining experience through internships in a variety of grade levels. These experiences helped develop her passion for education. She then went on to earn her master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction in Multicultural Contexts from Azusa Pacific University in 2013. In her new role as curriculum specialist, Mrs. Kinney is excited to support teachers at all elementary schools in the amazing work that they do. She is excited for the opportunity to learn and grow more as an educator. Outside of Equitas, Mrs. Kinney enjoys cooking, and hanging out with her husband Mr. Kinney, and their dog Captain.
