Hi there! Nice to meet you!
I'm Kim - a passionate educator and life long learner. Every day I try to apply something new to my life - which has made for a very interesting journey.
I started out as a public school teacher in rural South Carolina, where I listened to the life stories of my students. Some of them were absolutely heart breaking... they put my #firstworldproblems to shame. So, I gave them the only gifts I had worth giving: self-confidence and technology.
From school teacher to teacher trainer to marketer, I've learned many things about education and technology: to be the most effective, we have to share our experiences. Teachers need to collaborate in meaningful ways (that are not mandated by schools or districts). Student's must learn how to work in cooperative spaces and in online environments where they are limited only by their own imaginations.
I want to transform the way the world does learning. I hope you join me.
