Clifford Kroski has been teaching engaging and highly-lauded classes in our department since 2002. He was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland where he participated in a number of sports in high school and college. He worked as a therapist for 20 years before he turned his attention to education. He is an avid supporter of Baltimore sports teams.

Cliff came to Kansas City in 2001 after having lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico for 10 years. He and his wife, Janet Sunderland, live in the Waldo area of Kansas City. Cliff enjoys teaching, traveling, Dan Brown novels, good movies, sports, and cooking and eating good food. He plays softball in an over 50 men's league. Cliff is passionate about teaching and believes that his primary focus is to allow students the ability to think and question. He believes that education occurs every day of our lives and we need to be open and responsive to life's possibilities.
