Kahla Vitz found her calling as a teaching assistant for engineering programming courses in college. Since then, she has primarily taught 6th and 7th grade math. As a math and computer teacher at Calvert Academy today, she is thrilled to see her students grow academically and personally.
“I love seeing my students progress over time and helping them master fundamental skills,” she said. “I have had the privilege of teaching the same students for multiple years, and their accomplishments never cease to amaze me.”
As a child growing up in Las Vegas, Mrs. Vitz enjoyed reading, riding her bike, playing outside with friends, and participating in art classes. Today, Mrs. Vitz has two mini Australian shepherds named Payton and Aspen. When she’s not teaching or spending time with her family, Mrs. Vitz enjoys running, reading, and listening to podcasts.
