Ms. Caylie Yessa

I am excited to join the Hickman Mills Team as the Math and Science Instructional Coach at Ruskin High School. I am a part of the Kansas City PLUS program (Pathway to Leadership in Urban Schools). I chose to become a PLUS Resident in Kansas City because this city and its students have instilled a deep desire in me to help drive positive change within our schools and community. I am proud to be able to serve the students and families of Kansas City in this new role. Prior to residency, I taught middle school science in Kansas City, MO, Kansas City, KS, and Brooklyn, NY. I was successful in creating culturally responsive, engaged, and high performing classrooms evidenced by multiple years of growth on state science tests. I am also actively engaged in the community as a volleyball coach, tutor, and mentor.
