Kimberly believes that the ultimate goal of education is to mold students to be productive citizens for their community. To help prepare students for the future, she works hard with colleagues and residents of the community to create programs to help bring the outside world alive inside the walls of her area schools. These programs include the United for Literacy Initiative where all stakeholders unite in support of improving literacy outcomes for students, and “Speak Your Writing” project which allows students to improve writing through group discussions. Also, she was instrumental in forming “Educators Across the Plateau” in partnership with the South Cumberland Community Fund fostering professional learning and collaboration for teachers, administrators and district leaders.
Kimberly has received numerous awards for her work in literacy including LAT Reading Teacher of the Year, Southeast Regional Teacher of the Year, Read to be Ready Coach of the month as well as the Sissy Stewart Literacy Award. She spent years interviewing US Veterans along with peers ultimately producing articles published and registered with the Library of Congress.
Kimberly holds a Bachelor’s degree in education from Middle Tennessee University, a Master’s degree in instructional leadership, and an EdS degree in supervision and administration both from Tennessee Technological University.
