Hello! My name is Kimberly Grimes and I am so excited to be your second grade teacher this year. This is my 8th year teaching. I taught second grade for a year in Cobb County before coming to Paulding County and have taught first grade for three years and third grade for three years, and this is my second year in 2nd grade. Before teaching, I was a Sign Language Interpreter for the Duval County Schools in Florida. I moved to Georgia in December of 2006 from Jacksonville, Florida. I am married with a beautiful 5 year old, red-head girl named Madison and a little boy named Lincoln, who was born in April 2013. We also have a pug named Piggy who keeps us very entertained.
I received my Elementary Education degree at the University of North Florida in December of 2006 with an ESOL endorsement and my AS in Sign Language Interpreting from Florida Community College in 2003.
I believe a child’s education is a team responsibility between the teacher, parent, and student. I believe every child has the potential to reach their goal and I will do whatever it takes to help them get there.
