Bio

My name is Kimberly Staton and I am currently teaching second grade at East Brainerd Elementary.  I view teaching as an opportunity to help students to explore the world around them.  I believe that each child is a unique individual who deserves a secure, caring, and stimulating environment in which to grow and learn. 

I grew up in Chattanooga.  I have a 7 year old daughter.  I went to elementary school at Chattanooga School for the Arts and Sciences.  I attended Chattanooga School for Performing Arts for 2 years and graduated from Ooltewah High School.  I graduated from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville where I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Political Science with a minor in Elementary Education.  I have a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from University of Tennessee at Knoxville.  I am beginning my 7th year as a teacher.  I taught 3 years in Florida were I taught kindergarten, first, and second grade.  I taught 7 years in second grade in Hamilton County.

My goals as a teacher are to provide a supportive and comfortable classroom environment for each child, to build a community of lifelong learners, and to establish positive relationships with each student and their family.
