About Kimberly from Funky First Grade Fun

My name is Kimberly.  I am proud to be a mother, wife, speech-language pathologist and a teacher.  Mt family includes my husband and our 2 children.  I am so proud of my husband and my amazing kids.  We also have 2 goldendooles. We are truly blessed!


I've been teaching for 13 years.  My teaching experience includes school based speech-language therapy, young 5s, kindergarten, 1st grade and working as a literacy intervention specialist.  First grade is by far my favorite thing to teach! I feel super lucky to spend my days working with children.  There is nothing more rewarding than knowing that you have the chance to make a difference in the life of a child. 

I'm pretty sure that most people who know me would agree on a few things...
I work hard.
I have lots of opinions (that I'm not shy about sharing).
I believe that it's important to advocate for every child.
And... I talk way too much.  Ha!


I hope you will visit my teaching blog.
