Hello There!

Hello there! I'm Kim and I'm the creator and teacher behind Little Miss Kim's Class. I've been a teacher for 8 years and I've been working with children with special needs for more than 10 years. 

I started this blog and my Teachers Pay Teachers journey because I wanted a way to share my ideas and resources and to connect with other teachers who work with students with moderate to significant needs. 

I've worked in a middle school classroom in a public separate special education school, but most of my time has been teaching at traditional public elementary schools in self-contained classrooms.
As a teacher, I'm obsessed with teaching students functional communication and literacy skills! I also a bit of an applied behavior analysis nerd. I love to have fun and be silly with my students but I'm also a pretty organized and structured teacher.

On the weekends and over breaks, I'm a little all over the place and love adventures! I LOVE to travel! When I started teaching, I made myself a promise to visit a new place every summer... My favorite travel places so far include the Scandinavian countries, Austria and Switzerland (okay, maybe anywhere with mountains?!). My weekends are normally spent outside with my husband and Ike (a facility dog!) hiking, biking and skiing in Colorado.
