Kim Stokes

4th Grade Teacher

It has been said that, “Students don’t care what you know until they know that you care…” It is very important that Mrs. Stokes’ students know they are valued and loved in her classroom and that each child believes they can reach their goals and dreams. Mrs. Stokes also feels that partnering with parents is key to student accountability and progress and that parents are teachers too! For the past 25 years, Mrs. Stokes has always been excited to share with students her gifts, talents and items in her “tool bag” of learning. What continues to motivate her is being able to integrate God’s Word into the curriculum, as she helps “train up” each child that comes into her classroom, knowing they have tremendous potential and possibilities. “I am truly grateful for the years the Lord has given me to serve as a teacher and Lord willing, I look forward to challenging myself and striving for excellence in teaching, in the years to come.”
