Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Kim Gamble. I graduated from Baker University in 1995 with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and an emphasis in Reading Intervention. I have taught at New York Elementary for 21 years and have loved getting to know my students and their families! I have taught Fourth grade, First grade, Title Math, and Kindergarten.
I am the proud mother of three grown sons and three grandchildren. Two of my sons are in the military, one Navy and one a Marine, so you can imagine the immense pride and worry that I experience as I watch them deploy all over the world.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy gardening, spending time with family and running various types of obstacle courses involving lots of mud and running! I love seeing what I can do and feeling the sense of pride and accomplishment when I complete a race. I love helping my students overcome their obstacles and become empowered in the classroom. I believe in them and have very high expectations of them and they always amaze me with what they can do!
