Mrs. Michele Kuykendall (EIP)


Dear Parents, 

Welcome to another school year! I am excited to serve as an EIP teacher at Impact Academy. Together, students and I will dive into academics, with a focus on math and reading. We will develop the skills of critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, creativity, and teamwork as we close achievement gaps and accelerate within a grade level. 

I want to take a moment to tell you a little about myself. I was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. The USA became my new home in 1992.  I hold a Masters of Science in Education with a focus on Literacy and Reading from Walden University. My math instruction is enhanced through a math endorsement that supports math instruction in K-6 classrooms. As a musician, I love playing the piano and listening to a variety of music. You will often find me reading professional books, painting landscapes, and volunteering at my church.

As we work together this year, students will grow as readers and mathematicians! We will use strategies and tools to support their thinking and problem-solving skills. I welcome your participation and feedback as our learners excel throughout the year.


With fondest regards,

Mrs. Kuykendall (Mrs. K.)
