About Me (Bio):
Kim has served for eight years as the mathematics consultant for Stow-Munroe Falls City Schools, just north of Akron, Ohio. She works with teachers in inservice settings and (for about half of each day) with students and teachers in classrooms, as well as coordinating the K-12 mathematics program. Before she entered this position, Kim taught middle school mathematics for six years, and she has worked on NSF-funded projects related to the assessment of children’s mathematical understanding and the professional learning of teachers that is necessary to support children’s mathematical development. Kim is a doctoral candidate in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in mathematics education at Kent State University, and her research and professional interests focus on aligning policy and professional development to support the ongoing learning of students and educators. Kim is also the immediate past president of the Ohio Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
