Ms. Dallaire

Hello My Name Is...

Kira Dallaire

Welcome to the Middle School at Clara B. Ford Academy!

Ms. Dallaire joined the middle school team in August 2019. She teaches English and Social Studies and is part of the TST - Special Education team. Ms. Dallaire earned her BA from Eastern Michigan University in elementary education (K-8), with a focus on reading and integrated science in 2010. After graduating, Ms. Dallaire worked as a before/after school and summer camp program director and a preschool and 4-year-old kindergarten teacher.

In 2017 Ms. Dallaire earned her MA in special education from Eastern Michigan University; and, because one masters degree wasn't enough, Ms. Dallaire earned a second MA in Women's and Gender Studies from Eastern Michigan in December 2018. During graduate school Ms. Dallaire worked as a research and teaching assistant. She also worked as a community advocate with Wayne State University's Community Advocacy Project (CAP).  One project that Ms. Dallaire is especially proud of, is her collaborative language work, where she helped create and teach Miami of Illinois grammar workshops as part of a larger language-revitalization movement. 

In her off time Ms. Dallaire enjoys spending time with her husband and cat, being with friends and family, and listening to great music! 

I am very excited to be a part of the Clara B. Ford community!
