Hello Lind families!

 

My name is Kimberly Davis and I will be the new Instructional Facilitator at Jenny Lind this year.  I am very excited to be back on the northside working with this amazing school, staff, families and students.  

My background- I have been in education 18 years, working as an elementary teacher, coach, instructional specialist and providing professional development for teachers.  I have worked for Minneapolis Public Schools for the past 3 years.  Prior to that, I worked in both St Paul and at a northside charter school.  I am currently enrolled in my Education Specialist/Administrator program at St Mary's University.

Goals for this year- Teachers do amazing work each and every day.  In this role, I will be supporting teachers and students to ensure that all students are held to high expectations and reach their goals at school and develop lifelong learning skills.  It is my goal to help students develop a growth mindset and resiliency by learning from mistakes and continuing to try new ways of doing things.  When students can develop flexibility in their thinking and ideas, they will commit to being lifelong problem-solvers.

When I am not at school, my family enjoys being outside; hiking, rollerblading, exploring the city.  I have 2 boys, ages 8 and 9 who both play basketball, football and baseball.  

I will be adding some mathematics resources and links to support your child at home, as the year goes on.

Please reach out to me with any questions you might have.

Sincerely,

Kimberly Davis
