Our Residents

"My goal as a school leader is to see the vision I created during Summer Institute become a reality."

Kirsten Brown - Principal, Crossroads High School

I chose to become a PLUS resident because I am passionate about education and desire to be the most effective leader possible for my teachers and students.

Prior to the Residency, I’ve worked over eight years of experience in Kansas City schools. I have led professional development sessions across the country for UMKC, Teach for America, Kansas City Teacher Residency Program and the Kauffman Teacher-Leader Fellowship. I also completed the Leading Educators Fellowship program and my Master’s in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies at the University of Missouri-Columbia. For the past five years, I’ve ran a Leadership Cadre which I worked with teachers and community leaders to provide targeted leadership development for students. In the fall of 2017, I became the founding principal of Crossroads High School.
