Kimberly graduated in 2009 from the University of Michigan Dearborn with a Master of Arts in History (minor in English) and a Secondary Teaching Certificate in Social Studies and English. She is currently attending Central Michigan University Online and working on her Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction, with a focus on literacy. She arrived on the education scene very traditionalist and idealist, but once she started teaching with WAY in 2010 and with WAY Michigan in 2015, she quickly learned to value and appreciate the uniqueness of each and every student and their individual path to a high school diploma and beyond. She loves working with each student within their unique circumstances and helping them figure out the best way to complete their school work and earn their diploma. She believes that with the proper support and encouragement, every student can earn an education that will help them succeed on their path in life.

Prior to becoming a teacher, she spent 17 years as a state and nationally certified athletic trainer, working at the professional, collegiate, and high school settings.

I began my teaching career back in 2002, in North Bay, Ontario, Canada. After 10 years of teaching English and coaching students through the Ontario Literacy Test, I relocated to Michigan to be with my husband, an American. We met on a cruise during summer vacation back in 2009. After taking a few years away from teaching and following my husband to Germany, Ireland, Texas and Chicago for his work, I returned to the classroom in 2016 and am now a Reading Specialist here at WAY Flint. I’m looking forward to accomplishing great things together.
