Ms. Kim Darling

Hi, my name is Kim Darling and I recently graduated from National Louis University.  Previously, I attended Kendall College and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education.  I have over 25 years experience working with young children and find it an absolute pleasure.  I also, feel continuing to learn from my students allows me to grow and help them continue to blossom.  

I have two adult children, Sheena and Seslie.  They both live out of state one in California and the other in North Carolina.  I have two grandson's one from each of my girls.  When I am not teaching I also, attend school where I am seeking a credential in Special Education. 

I also enjoy working out, reading, listening to music, and gardening.  

I look forward to a great year with all of you and look forward to developing partnerships where you may want to share a tradition you have with our class, a story, or even an exciting adventure you have been on.  Strong school and family partnerships have shown to enhance love for learning in our children.  I look forward to hearing from you if you would like to engage in our learning.  


We will be using Seesaw this year for remote learning.  If you have trouble with the link please feel free to reach out to me.
