Welcome to 4th grade!

I will be your 4th grade GATE math, science, and social studies teacher.

I was born in California, but spent most of my youth and early adulthood in Florida and New York. I married the love of my life, Jeff, in June 1993. He retired after 29 years in the U.S. Army, and is now a Battalion TAC at the Citadel. We moved here in 1995 with our precious children, Charles, Savannah, and Michael. They have since grown up, graduated from college, and have homes of their own. I have a brother, Sean who lives with his beautiful family in Virginia. Both our parents, Gloria and Terry live in the same town in Virginia.

We have a tiny “farm” where we play with our 3 rambunctious dogs, Didi, Luna, and Bowzer. We also have our kitty named Tiger, and 3 egg-laying chickens!            

This is my 22nd year of teaching and my 10th year at William Reeves Elementary School. I have taught 1st through 6th grade at different times in my career, but really LOVE, LOVE, LOVE 4th grade!

I want to create a learning environment that is fun, engaging, safe, and positive. I have high expectations for my students and myself. There is a big world out there, and I am excited to be a small part of preparing my students for all that it contains.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you ever have any questions.

Your partner in education,

Mrs. Kimberly Panton
