Education and Professional Background:
Hi, my name is Calla Urban and I will be starting my first year as a middle school Art teacher at Kinard Core Knowledge Middle School. I graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in Art education. I student taught at Kinard and spent the 2018-2019 school year working as an Integrated Services Para here as well. I am beyond excited to be coming back to Kinard in my new role as an art teacher this year. The character and kindness I have found here at Kinard is unmatched, and I can't think of a better place to start my teaching career!
Personal Intrests and Hobbies:
I am a native Coloradoan and as such I love all things outdoorsy, such as hiking, climbing and camping. Along with creating my own visual art I also love playing guitar and singing with my sister. My other big passion is volleyball. I love playing outdoor tournaments in the summer and I will be coaching the 7th grade girls team at Kinard as well. I can't wait to help my students explore their own interests and passions through art.
