Rheanna Egli, Vice Principal
Hello! I am one of the Vice Principals at NEHS. I am here to support both students and staff in order to have a great year at Northeast! Originally from Iowa, I graduated from Emporia State University, where I played college basketball. I received my administration degree in urban education from UMKC. I enjoy athletics, working out, cooking, coffee, church, and being a lifelong learner.
Touria Pratt, Vice Principal
Hello! My name is Touria Pratt and I have the privilege of serving as your Vice Principal this year. I am married to my husband of twelve years, and together we have two beautiful children. I was born and raised in Morocco, so I am fluent in Arabic! Outside of my world of education, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, and watching interesting documentaries.
My Education and Professional Background:
I began my teaching career in 2011 as a Middle School Math teacher with KIPP Endeavor Academy, I then transitioned to teaching High School Math at Liberty North for 8 years, and was recently a Math Teacher at Staley High School.
I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics from the University of Illinois-Springfield, I earned my Master’s Degree in Teaching from Park University, and then I went on to complete my Educational Specialist Degree in Secondary School Administration from Northwest Missouri State University.
My Educational Philosophy:
I believe education is paramount to success. Education is the preservation and enhancement of knowledge and the development of character within our society. It serves as children’s best preparation for the future. Education gives individuals the power to think effectively and objectively. It drives their capacity to find the truth and to fight prejudices & propaganda.
Schools are what help children develop their own capabilities for success in life; becoming effective citizens, workers, and parents. Schools help students achieve personal academic success, have concern for the environment, concern for themselves and others, as well as learn about responsibility, leadership, and diversity. Schools should provide all children equal access to education, regardless of their race, socio-economic status, or gender.
Andrew Monrean, Vice Principal
Hello! My name is Andrew Monrean, and I'm thrilled to join the fantastic team at Northeast High School as a Vice Principal and looking forward to a great 22-23 school year. I'm originally from Pennsylvania and graduated from the Clarion University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education. I moved to the Kansas City metro area in 2007 to teach Social Studies and coach football. I began working in urban schools in Kansas City in 2014 at Hogan Prep as a Social Studies teacher before leaving for KCPS in 2019. In KCPS, I taught Social Studies for two years at Lincoln Middle before joining the UMKC PLUS program to gain my certification for administration. I'm coming to Northeast after spending the past year as an Instructional Coach at Paseo Academy. I currently reside in Westport with my partner, a middle school librarian in the Olathe School District, and two sons, ages 9 and 4. Again, I'm thrilled to be joining the team at Northeast and can't wait to meet everyone!
