Mrs. Kim McClure
Hi! I’m Kim McClure, your child’s first grade teacher and your partner in his/her learning journey this year! I have been teaching for 20+ years, most of them in District 5, and many of them here at Ballentine. My formal education includes an Undergraduate and Master’s Degree (both in Early Childhood Education) from USC and my +30. Of course, I continue to take courses in reading, math, technology, etc to stay up to date on the most current educational research!
My family and I love to spend time together and our current interests include frequent ping pong tournaments, movie nights, jeep rides, and lazy days at the lake! I share about our adventures with my students, so I’m sure you’ll hear about my children as if they are your children’s classmates! Likewise, my family loves to hear about my “class family”, and come to care about them as much as I do during the year!
I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child! I tell all my students I am their “school mom”... rest assured, I will work hard to keep them safe and teach them well. Please know, I always have your child’s best interest at heart and I thank you for sharing him/her with me!
