Joanne Kirchoff

MVA Science Teacher

Hi! I am Joanne Kirchoff, I have been a science teacher since 2006. I have been with MVA since 2012. I have an AS in Respiratory therapy from KCKCC, a BS in Biology from Wichita State University, and my education degree from Southwestern College. Currently, I am attending Baker University working on my Master of Science in Instructional Design and Performance Technology.

Most of the courses each have a focus on life science or health sciences. Currently, I teach 6th-grade science, 7th-grade science, Biology, Health Sciences, Anatomy and Physiology, and AP Biology. I also have the pleasure of being the homeroom teacher for our 6th-grade students.


My husband and I have two children that are both students at MVA. They enjoy participating in activities and club sports outside of school. Some of their activities are soccer, swimming, basketball, softball, volleyball, and music lessons. Most of my free time is typically spent driving the kids to their extracurricular activities. When I can find time for myself, I enjoy playing golf, camping, baking, and making crafts.
