Kim completed her Master's degree while teaching full-time. She was inspired to go back to school once she came face-to-face with the deficits in our education system. Kim was teaching 10th grade English, yet most of her students were reading at the 5th grade reading level. In graduate school, she studied how our education system came to be at its current standpoint, as well as strategies to help her students. She is currently working as an Early Literacy Specialist for a non-profit organization that provides coaching to teachers.
Kim started teaching in 2010 and has been in this industry for ten consecutive years. She lead a team of teachers for five years. During two of those years, she was in graduate school improving her own education. She is currently working for a company that is up-to-date in the best practices in education. She works full-time as a coach for teachers in an urban school.
She created a practical, online guide for parents with children who are learning to read. The site is purposely simple; it has common questions with straightforward answers. The idea came from speaking with many parents about the frustration around teaching their child to read. They didn't know what questions to ask, which milestones to look for, or which websites have quality content. She took their concerns and packaged them into an easy-to-navigate format.
Kim has an intentionally limited social media presence. She posts when she has something to say, or when there is an especially cute picture of her cat and dog. She uses her social media accounts for connecting with family, and for learning new strategies to support her classroom.
