Miss Kim Anderson

Welcome to EL!  Working with children is my passion, and I am so excited to be working with you and your child here at Village Meadows.  My teaching careeer began in DVUSD.  I taught as a second grade teacher for seven years and loved the community.  After my seventh year, I decided to fulfill my dream of teaching abroad.  I moved to Shenzhen, China, and spent the next two years teaching Kindergarten at a private international school.  Every day felt like an adventure.  I learned so much about asian culture, teaching EL students and adapting to a foreign environment.  I now know what it feels like to live in a place where I did not know the language and had to connect and communicate without words.  I also know the joy you feel when you overcome this challenge and thrive.  As an EL Specialist, I hope to build your child's confidence in their understanding of English and empower them with tools to make them most successful in school. 

When I am not teaching, I can often be found exploring.  A few of my favorites are traveling, hiking, and experiencing new foods and cultures.   I also enjoy dancing, playing Ukelele and spending quality time with family and friends.

It is an honor to work with you and your child this year.  I look forward to getting to know you all over the next year!
