New Teachers for 2018-2019

Help us welcome these new teachers to Prairie!

Nia Jensen

Nia is our part time math specialist.  Nia previously taught 3rd and 5th grades at Prairie and has always had a passion for teaching math.  She left us this past year for a part-time position as a personal fitness teacher at Indian Woods Middle School.  She missed us so much that she jumped at the chance to apply for this position!

Shelby Mansfield

Shelby is new as a 4th grade teacher.  She too, missed us so much that she jumped at the chance to return to Prairie.  Shelby completed her student teaching with Jennie Reck in 4th grade a couple of years ago and has since taught 3rd grade at Apache and preschool at Lakeview Village Child Development Center.

Molly Miller

Molly is joining our 5th grade team.  Molly graduated from Pitt State in December and substituted throughout the district last semester. Her student teaching supervisor said she “is fearless when using technology” and welcomes a challenge. She also stated Molly went above and beyond to make each student feel special in her classroom.

Stacy Bell

Stacy is joining the Prairie team as our shared counselor with Belinder Elementary. Stacy recently moved back to
KC after spending the last twenty years in Chandler,Arizona. Her experience includes teaching students in grades 3rd-8th in the
area of special education with an emphasis in emotional disabilities. Stacy loves
collaborating with students, teachers and parents to maximize student growth.
