Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Kayla Manning

My name is Kayla Manning, I grew up in Oak Grove Missouri and graduated from there in May 2011. I currently live in Climax Springs Missouri with my family which is at the Lake of the Ozarks. I have been married since September of 2014 to Aaron Manning and we have 4 beautiful boys. Our foster son's name is Ryan (11) and our own children's names are Wyatt (5), Weston (4), and Wilder (2). They are definitely the center of my world and I am sure you will hear me talk about them a lot! We are also Foster Parents and have different children in and out of our home so our lives stay pretty busy, but we love it! 

I have been working in Education since 2014. I started off working as a Special Education Paraprofessional and have worked with students with various needs and at various ages. I also coached Cheer at my previous school for 3 years which I loved and would love to do again once my children are older. I completed two Associates Degrees at State Fair Community College in 2017 and my Bachelors Degree at Central Methodist University in 2018. I am now pursuing my Masters Degree in Literacy from Missouri State University. I worked at Smith-Cotton High School for my first 2 years but now I am excited to continue teaching at Buffalo High School!
