My name is Tessa Kinder, and I teach second grade. My time as a Flyer started back in 1999 as a preschool student. This school holds such a special place in my heart, and I am excited to be back at Fairview to start my career. I am passionate about shaping individuals into productive, responsible members of society and helping them to realize their potential.

I was born and raised in West Plains, Missouri. I attended Fairview until 8th grade and went to high school at West Plains High School. I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education degree from Missouri State University. I have always had a love of learning and look forward to instilling that love of learning in my future students. In my free time, I enjoy doing almost anything outdoors with my family. I love spending time on the river, kayaking, camping, hiking, and going to the beach.
