Leah Starr, Principal of Trailwoods

I have been proudly passionate about students in Kansas City since I began teaching in Kansas City Public Schools in 2002. My love for student growth and development has grown over the 22 years I have worked in education. Before coming to Kansas City Public Schools I worked as Early Childhood Teacher and Director. I earned my undergrad degree in Early Childhood Education from Park University, a Mastered in Multidisciplinary Education from Webster University, and my Ed Specialist degree from the University of Missouri. I came to Trailwoods in 2010 as an Instructional Coach. I then became a Vice Principal and in 2017 became Principal of Trailwoods. I believe in giving opportunities and guidance to students that allows them to use their leadership skills and talents do great things for our community and the world.
