Kimberly Parker - STEAM Instructional Coach

Education has always been my dream job - from the time when I was a little girl until now. I used 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 am absolutely in love with Leaphart Elementary STEAM Magnet, the students, the families,  and the staff!

This is my 21st 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 Accommodations for the Divergent Learner. I have a 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 husband and I have been married for 24 years. Together, we have a son, Tyler, and a daughter, Holly, and our three pups who keep us entertained all the time! 

Leaphart is my second home and I thoroughly enjoy being a part of this wonderful village! I am available for questions about STEAM and eager to talk all about our school! Please reach out anytime!
