Kim grew up in Wakefield, RI and taught as both an elementary school teacher (grades 1-6) and a literacy specialist in the South Kingstown Schools. She retired after 30 years of teaching in South Kingstown and has been searching for an elementary school that encompasses progressive education, character development and a strong sense of community. Thankfully she has found it here at JCDSRI. Kim has a BA in Elementary Education/Psychology, an MA in Literacy Education and an MS in Special Education. Interests include reading, writing, spending time at the beach and history. Kim has five children, ages 12-21, and she loves spending time with her family.
