Kim believes all teachers have the ability to make a difference in the life of a child and devotes her time, energy, and knowledge to helping make that happen. She helps teachers to incorporate the “Three R’s” into their lesson plans:


Kim demonstrates how creating a positive environment with a strong sense of connection is critical in education.  “The most powerful predictor of student achievement is the quality of relationships among the staff.” (The Harvard Principals Center)


Kim helps teachers and administrators create cultures of high expectations with rich instruction, where students are provided with the support necessary to help them achieve at high levels in their learning.


Kim believes lessons must be meaningful every single day and relevant to the 21st century student.  Additionally, engagement is of vital importance when examining content and approach to learning.

  • I’m telling you, this literacy trainer is awesome! If you have a chance to attend yourself and/or get teachers to go, it would be extremely worth it. I contracted with her several times when I was the professional development coordinator for the Southern Indiana Education Center, and the teachers and literacy coaches who attended couldn’t get enough of her!
