Greetings KOCA-Paul Quinn students, families and community. I am excited and humbled to join the KIPP Oak Cliff family! I am a Colorado native but have been a Cowboys fan since I was a kid, and am looking forward to relocating to the great state of Texas.
I was fortunate to be a classroom teacher at Thomas Jefferson High School in Denver for 8 years prior to stepping into administration. I have been in the leadership side of education for the past 6 years and administration journey allowed me to experience various school models from k-12. I am passionate about creating transformational educational experiences for students and am excited to bring my diverse school experience to KOCA and engage with the students and staff to ensure that this is the experience of each KOCA student.
I hold a deep belief that schools should be a community hub and am looking forward to working alongside each of you as we work together to provide a safe, welcoming environment for students and families in the pursuit of educational excellence and intersectional justice that will continue to empower and propel students long after their time at KOCA.
Thank you for this amazing opportunity and I look forward to meeting and working alongside you all very soon.
Wauneta L. Vann
