Kahnyatahawise Cornelius (Oneida)
Kahnyatahawise means “She carries the snow” in Oneida. Kahnya was the first graduate of the UTTC Elementary Education AAS degree program and, a few years later, one of the first graduates of the dual major in Elementary Ed/Special Ed partnership on the UTTC campus with Sinte Gleska University.
Kahnya is teaching Special Education this fall at the Oneida Nation High School Oneida, WI, the same high school from which she graduated.
Kahnya was particularly strong in classroom management strategies and was commended numerous times by teachers of the classrooms where she completed her field experiences and student teaching.
