Hi!  My name is Kimberly Gaines. I am a life-long resident of Georgia, having lived in the Carrollton area for most of my life.   Before becoming a teacher, I was a stay at home mom.  I am the proud mom of three children.  My oldest son is a United States Marine.  My only daughter is in 11th grade.  My youngest son is in 5th grade.  When I am not at school, I love spending time with my family (which includes our fur babies) and I am crazy about running.  

I am excited about beginning a new school year with my new Kindergarten class. I look forward to a great year of learning with your children.
