My name is Kristine Kovarik and this is my first year joining the wonderful community at Clay Academy.This year I am excited to be working in the role of Academic Instructional Coach. In this role I will be working with the principal, staff, and students to support student learning in the classroom. We will be working on analyzing data, planning, and building our capacity as teachers to ensure that all students have access to a high quality education. I am excited to continue to learn and grow with the Clay community. Prior to joining the staff at Clay Academy I have taught Kindergarten at Ford and Adams Elementary in Saint Louis Public Schools as well as a charter school and Pre-K in Atlanta, GA.
