Hi! My name is Kim Shoemake and I am a Kindergarten Teacher at G. C. Burkhead Elementary. I earned my BS degree from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and my MA from Olivet Nazarene University. Since my husband was military, I began my teaching career with DODDS Schools in Schweinfurt, West Germany in 1983. My first teaching experience was in Kindergarten. Our next stop was Kankakee, Illinois in 1986 where I taught First Grade. We moved to Elizabethtown, Kentucky in 1990 where I have taught Third Grade and Kindergarten. My favorite teams are the Carolina Tarheels and the Chicago Bears. My favorite color is purple and my favorite animal is the monkey. But, our mini "hotdog" Belle is my most favorite!!
