Kimberly Parker

Education has always been my dream job - since the time when I was a little girl until now. I use to "play school" with my dolls and stuffed animals, even to the point of creating rosters and grading papers! Today, I am living my dream, and then some! I absolutley am in love with Leaphart Elementary STEAM Magnet, the students, and the staff!

This is my 18th year as an educator. I graduated from Columbia College in 2001 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I received a Master's Degree from Francis Marion in 2005 for Instructional Accomodations for the Divergent Learner. I have background in teaching Gifted and Talented, Single Gender, and STEM. All of this experience brought me to where I am today - teaching and mentoring in the area of STEAM. 

My huband and I have been married for 21 years. Our son, Tyler, is a Senior in highschool, and our daughter Holly is a freshman in highschool. We have three pups that we love dearly - Joy, Samson, and Winnie.
