  • Why I Teach at YWCA Minneapolis (and you can too!)
    Kira, teacher at YWCA Minneapolis Why I Teach at YWCA Minneapolis (and you can too!)

    My name is Kira Peters. I am an artist and teacher. I am passionate about working with children because I am able to work in an environment rich in creativity and learning. I enjoy working at YWCA Minneapolis because I am constantly being challenged to teach in new ways. YWCA Minneapolis uplifts the profession of Early Childhood Education by staying current in teaching methods and valuing its teachers. We are now hiring additional teachers - join me at a great place to work!
