Congrats on the nomination Kim. No one is more deserving of this award than you. Everyone who knows you is aware of all the things you do that are way above what is required or expected. I love hearing your stories about your students achievements. You are always looking for new ways to insure your kids are challenged but not beyond their capabilities. Keep up the good work and know that I will be praying for you and your students as you start your new school year.

Kim has been instrumental in my children's education. Each summer she reinforces math and reading so they won't "lose it". My daughter went to see her almost every night last for math tutoring. She is a big part of the reason both my kids have over a 4.0 each. Not only does she care for my children's education, she goes above and beyond for her students. I have never seen someone work as hard as she does. She is determined to get through to the children, and succeeds more often than not. She has lead many after school activities, on top of her daily duties. Kim has devoted her life to teaching. Her students continually come back to visit her after they have moved on. They love and respect her for the genuine interest in their growth and progress. She is amazing!
