Kimberly has as a Bachelor of Arts in Special Education Mild/Moderate Disabilities K-12 and Elementary K-8, Associate of Arts in Ethnic Minority Health and Human Services. Through the gentle guidance of the Lord, Kimberly found herself at AHS as a parent, and then as an 8th grade aide, and eventually as a full-time 8th grade teacher when the opportunity arose. She has two children who attend AHS and will be in 7th and 9th grade. “It has been an immense blessing for our family and for me personally. Each student is a unique individual with their own strengths and challenges. I love the process of discovering this as I pray about them by name, communicate with parents, plan curriculum, create a safe environment for sharing and give them leadership opportunities.” She gets excited about finding new and creative ways to teach using technology, art, music, hands on experiences, guest speakers, field trips and more. Kimberly enjoys being with her family, she plays the cello, piano, and sings.
