Hi! I am Kim Summers and this is my story:
I graduated from the University of South Alabama as a language arts secondary education major in 1992--yes, almost twenty years ago. I am currently enrolled in two summer courses (this one and and an online Foundations of Reading.) I am being wildly thrust into the "cloud world"--- kicking and screaming I might add. But I"m discovering I am excited about the new challenges.
My family roots are in Mobile, Alabama; but I have lived in Missouri and Central Florida. I also lived a year and a half in Brussels, Belgium (doing some missionary work.) My teaching experience has been in a variety of settings. Most currently I have taught elementary classes at Covenant Christian School where my children aged 9 and 12 attend school. Covenant is a great private school. It is small, but built on such strong educational foundations and leadership. I love teaching, but most of all I love partnering with families to raise great kids. When we get the parents on board, we're most effective.
I am taking these classes this summer to update my teaching certification in hopes of entering the secondary education field agian. The technological tools have changed so drastically. I am truly embarking on a journey to a wild new world.
I enjoy gardening, cooking and traveling; all of which I won't have time for over the next eight weeks.
