Mrs. Kim Williams
Hello and welcome to our class! I am excited for a new adventure as part of the Aspire Online Academy. I am new to the Deer Valley USD but am in my 13th year of teaching. I have worked with differently abled kids and young adults for over 30 years. I graduated from Evangel University, in Springfield MO, with a triple major of Learning Disabilities, Behavior Disorders and Social Sciences Secondary. I have enjoyed coaching as a graduate assistant in college, special olympics and as a job/supported living coach for young adults. In my down time, you might catch me at a sporting event taking pictures, hiking in the mountains or reading mystery novels.
I am mom to two amazing young men. My oldest, Eriq (19), is at NAU studying accounting and is a student athlete for the football team- Go Lumberjacks! My youngest, Zereoue (18), just left the “nest” this summer and is at the University of Utah as a member of the Ute football team. He will study Electronic Game design/software engineering. The house is quieter but my husband, Rick, and I still have two dogs (Samantha and Carter) to look after. Secretly, we are enjoying the ability to go to a grocery store without taking out extra loans to feed two very large teenagers.
