Kim is a musician and a BEd Student from New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. Kim’s teachables are Music and English at the secondary level. Kim has achieved her Bachelor of Music degree here at Acadia prior to starting her education degree. Kim loves exploring the Valley, working with local choirs such as the Annapolis Valley Honour Choir, Kings Chorale Children’s Chorus, Kingston United Church, and the Middleton Choral Society, participating in University ensembles, and teaching private piano students in the area. Kim is very passionate about working with people and has really enjoyed her time at Acadia and working within the community!
Kim believes teaching is a great path for life-long learning! She also hopes that she can inspire an excitement for learning in her students, and particularly a passion for music and creative expression. Kim’s favourite part of the BEd program is having the opportunity to work with so many wonderful staff and students here and building meaningful and helpful connections.
Kim’s most memorable teaching experience was actually not in a public school setting, but working with the Annapolis Valley Honour Choir. “It was our first day back to rehearsal in September after taking the summer off, and the students came rushing in with huge smiles on their faces – their collective energy was incredible! I’ve never seen a group of students SO excited to reconnect with their peers and get back into learning and making music together.”
We are so lucky to have wonderful, hard-working and passionate students like Kim!
