Mrs. Byrd's 2nd Grade Class
HELLO! My name is Kimberly Byrd. I am a second grade teacher at Stokesdale Elementary and I LOVE what I do for a living. I am so privileged to be a part of these young lives, if only for a little while! Thank you parents for entrusting your precious ones to me :)
I was born and raised in Bassett, Virginia. My husband, Brian and I began dating in high school and were married a few years after we graduated. We eventually moved to Greensboro and had 2 sons. My son, Seth is a sophomore at UNCC and my son Isaac is a junior in high school. We LOVE camping! We try to go camping as often as possible and enjoy every minute of it!
Quirky things about me:
With so many boys in my house, I do like girly things also. I love to cook, I love all cooking shows, cookbooks, cooking gadgets, cooking websites (allrecipes.com is AWESOME!), cooking magazines, you get the idea! I love to paint and to dabble in photography (though there is never time)! I love to organize when there is time. I like pink, blue, and brown together (stripes or polka dots are great!) I LOVE anything Christmas, do not be surprised to hear me humming holiday music a little too early in the year. I love anything miniature (I know it's weird). Most of all I LOVE MY JOB!
I am graduate of UNCG School of Education. I have been in the education industry for over 14 years (teaching preschool and elementary school). I take great pride in what I do and hope to teach your little ones all the things they should be learning, both academically and socially. I also try to do this in a fun, creative way to inspire them to want to do their very best. I am looking forward to a great year and cannot wait to see what we will do together as parents and teacher!
