Kim Edwards is one of the sweetest, most caring people I have ever known! I have worked at the school with her in years past and I am also a member of the same church as her. She has a unique passion for helping others, especially children! She is certainly very deserving of this award! Kim has a special way of helping her students to believe in themselves and to see that they can do anything that anyone else can do!
Kim is an instrumental part of Patterson Elementary. She goes above and beyond to assist students, colleagues, and her community. She selflessly and humbly does what is necessary to help students at Patterson Elementary become readers. Kim not only wants our students to be successful, but does what she needs to do to also help fellow teachers be successful! As a new teacher to Patterson six years ago, she took me under her wing and made sure I felt like a part of the "PES family." I truly appreciate her kindness and dedication to fulfilling her passion in serving others!
Kim always goes above and beyond to help students in our school become successful readers. She also is very active in our community and has a passion for helping others. She selflessly uses her time to help those in need. She has a huge heart for helping others and it shows in her everyday actions. She is very deserving of this award.
Mrs. Kim is a hard-working passionate educator! She is an excellent reading teacher. She teaches students strategies to use in reading and monitors struggling readers to be sure they get support that will boost their chances of success. She volunteers when she sees a need at our elementary school and works tirelessly to help our high school band. She reaches out to connect our community and school through an annual luncheon to honor our volunteers. She also tutors during the summer.
What a huge honor it is to be nominated! Kim’s volunteering and impact extends outside Patterson Elementary schools walls. It’s not uncommon to see her behind the scenes at church events and other schools in our county’s evnts (especially the Pierce County High school band, she is somehow involved in most aspects of this program). Even though she doesn’t ever seek attention or recognition, I am very proud and happy to see her be recgonized and nominated.
I am very proud of my wife and I think she is deserving of this award. She is also helping secure chaperones for the Sound of Silver marching band.
Congratulations Kim, you so deserve it!! Thanks for all you do!
You will never meet a more compassionate or hard working lady than Kimberley Edwards. She continues to change children's lives for the better, year after year. She wants to see each student succeed and reach their dreams. Without her, I would not be were I am today.
Ms. Kim, is a positive, consistent and passionate educator! Her gift is helping students excell in reading! She teaches reading during the school day in small groups as well as push in to the classroom. Her summers are filled with tutoring for students that need help with reading. Students come first for Ms. Kim!
I have been blessed know Kim Edwards for 19 years. She has always been very positive and a hard worker for our community, schools, and students. Kim takes time from her personal schedule to tutor students to make sure they are ready to excel in today's world. She is a master at teaching children to read. She goes above and beyond the call of duty to make sure all students get the interventions and support they need to be successful lifelong learners. On Friday nights and Saturdays you will find Kim in the bleachers with the band greeting everyone with a smile and kind word. She volunteers countless hours not only to elementary students but also the high school band. I would like to thank Kim for all she does selflessly for the students, parents, and community of Pierce County.
Ms. Edwards is a necessary part of our elementary school in Patterson!
She's loving, kind, & special to her students & coworkers. In other words, she's the best!!
