Hi there, my name is Miss Kim!

I am a Special Education Teacher at the Early Learning Academy. This is my second year teaching in the Spring Hill school district and I am so excited to be able to work with some more amazing kiddos!

I received my Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Unified from Fort Hays State University in the December of 2019. My teaching certification allows me to work with students from birth through third grade. In addition, I also have a Bachelor's degree in Communication, which I earned from Wichita State in 2010. 

Prior to teaching in Spring Hill, I spent two years working as a paraprofessional in the Blue Valley school district, in an early childhood special education classroom. The experience that I gained from these opportunities not only gave me the chance to work with some awesome kids, but also taught me the vital importance of tailoring my instruction to meet students' unique needs. In light of this, I strive to provide instruction that is designed to fit each student's learning style in order to better help them reach their full potential.

In my personal life, I am married to my husband Jeff, and together, we have two boys of our own, Hunter, who is eight, and Asher, who is four. In my free time, I love to spend time with my family, read, travel, scrapbook, get outside, and play with our two dogs, Ghost and Gizmo.

I am so excited to work with you and your student this year. If you ever need anything, please don't hesitate to reach out to me at or 913-592-7149.
