Hello Mouse Room Families!

My name is Kimberly Vail (Ms. Kim) and I am your child's preschool teacher in the Mouse Room this year! 

I attended Southern Illinois University and Saint Xavier University where I received my degree in Early Childhood Education with an Endorsement in Special Education. This is my 4th year at the James Mitchem Earyl Childhood Center and my 16th year teaching! A little bit about my family. I have a 17 year old son who just started his senior year of high school! 

in the Mouse Room we will be learning through play based learning centers and different units of study. I am looking forward to teaching your child and watching them learn and grow this year. We are going to have  a lot of fun learning and exploring!

I truly believe that your are your child’s first teacher and that it is important that we work together to ensure the best school experience for your child. I am always available if you have any questions or concerns.

It's going to be a great year!

Ms. Kim
