Principal's Welcome

Hello, Crossroads Family and Community!

My name is Felisha Harper. Many of you may know me as a former teacher and administrator of Crossroads Preparatory Academy where I worked 4 years before relocating to Nashville, TN. It is with great pleasure to announce that I am returning to Kansas City and the Crossroads community as the next building principal of CPA! 

For those of you who do not know me- here is a little about myself: I am from a small military town 4 hours south of Kansas City. After high school, I attended Drury University and worked full time while raising my son. In 2012, I graduated with my bachelors degree in English and it was then that I decided to substitute within the local school district. I immediately fell in love with all things education and made the decision to move to Kansas City to begin my career after graduating with my master’s degree in education. My first year in education, I taught with the Kansas City Public School district as a 7th grade English teacher. Through a close friend I heard about Crossroads, their mission and commitment to educational equity and was inspired to make the transition from the public school sector into the charter world.

I taught 3 years at Crossroads where I served as a Grade Level Lead before moving into the Dean of Students/Athletic Director role. Currently, I am the Academic Assistant Principal at Valor Collegiate Academy, a high performing charter school, in Nashville, TN. When it comes to education and leadership, I am incredibly passionate about equity, curriculum, the growth and development of our teachers and all things school culture. 

Outside of teaching I love to travel, listen to music-both studio and live, watch documentaries, spend time with my family and brunch! I love nature and hip coffee shops. I enjoy walks in my favorite Kansas City neighborhoods and hanging out with my son.

I am so excited to return to Kansas City and even more excited to take on this new role. I am also deeply grateful for all the existing relationships I have within the community and look forward to building new ones.

Yours Truly, 
Felisha R. Harper
Crossroads Prep Academy Principal
