Hi! My name is Kim Graham. I was born and raised in Alaska. I graduated From UAF with a B.Ed in Education in 1994 and I have a Reading Specialist Certificate from UAS. I have been married to the love of my life for 31 years. We have two wonderful daughters who attended Pioneer Peak School. One is a senior in college, the other is a nurse. We couldn't be more proud parents!I love absolutely LOVE teaching Kindergarten! I love watching their little minds work and the many ideas they come up with. I have the greatest job in the world!This year your child will learn the alphabet, learn to read, or at least get the fundamentals to do so, and count to a 100 plus. They will learn the sight words that will help them with their reading and learn to add and subtract. But most importantly, they will learn to work with others and listen to directions from another adult. This is an exciting time in their life!Newsletter September 30
