Our Residents

"Kansas City students deserve to receive the absolute best from their schools."

Erin Kautz - Kansas City Teacher Residency

I chose to become a PLUS Resident because Kansas City students deserve to receive the absolute best from their schools. I want to enhance my leadership skills so I can better serve teachers and the Kansas City community.

Prior to the Residency, I taught in urban education for three years. My first two years, I taught eighth-grade English and guided reading, where my students ranked 12th in the state for their performance on the MAP test. From there, I taught third-grade English and was a mentor teacher for the Kansas City Teacher Residency. I also served as an Urban Leaders Fellow for Julie Holland, the education advisor to Mayor Sly James, where I conducted research on diversity metrics, leadership autonomy and project-based learning for policies to be enacted for the re-opening of Southwest High School.
