Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Kim Neises and this is my 11th year of teaching. I have been at Deerfield for 4 years now and previously taught at Schwegler. I love teaching 2nd grade. I have my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and Masters Degree in Curriculum and Teaching, both from the University of Kansas. Rock Chalk Jayhawk. I also have my endorsement in teaching English as a Second Language.
I became a teacher because I believe that a teacher can make the difference in how a student grows. My goal is to help create life long learners who value their individual qualities and strengths. Every student is unique and special. I have a passion for the arts, traveling, and history. I try to incorporate these into my teaching. I love it when we can connect the world and our likes to the content we are learning.
