Kim has an elementary generalist Bachelor of Education degree and a Masters in Educational Studies with a focus on the Roles and Responsibilities of Native Liaison Workers in Northern Alberta. She has 33 years of experience as an educator in High Prairie and area.
Kim spent many years researching and learning about barriers to Indigenous student achievement and how to remove those barriers. Her journey led her in many directions, including an opportunity to put what she learned into practice. The results were highly rewarding for students and were encouraging for increasing minority student achievement. Kim’s work on closing the achievement gap was influenced by a variety of findings and experiences, including: The Equity Framework, Diversity Training, Cultural Awareness and Personal Wellness as well as Critical Pedagogy and Transformative Theory.
