Welcome to Miss Kirby's Kindergarten Class!
Hey there! My name is Kim Kirby, and I am absolutely ecstatic to be your child's kindergarten teacher this year! I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from Anderson University, and I am currently studying to receive my Master's in Education in Literacy from Clemson University. I have received intensive training in the Orton-Gillingham Approach as well as the SIOP method for ESOL instruction. I am also a product of Anderson District One; I went to Hunt Meadows Elementary, Wren Middle, and Wren High School. I love this district, and I am so happy to be back for another school year with my West Pelzer family.
My teaching assistant is the incredible Mrs. Christi Dahl. She will be a very valuable asset to our classroom family this year, and your child is so lucky to have her as their bonus teacher!
I will primarily use Seesaw to communicate with you throughout the school year. Be sure to download the app to keep updated on all of the excitement going on in our classroom!
It is going to be a WONDERFUL year in kindergarten. I can't wait to go on this journey with you and your child.
