    My name is Deona Kim and I LOVE teaching Kindergarten! This is my 18th year teaching Kindergarten at Fall City Elementary.
    Kindergarten is my passion and the only place I want to be. Kindergarten is such an exciting year because there is so much growth for each child. It is amazing to see each little one blossom throughout the year into a confident, independent learner. Learning is exciting, and I want your child to love it as much as I do. My goal is for your child to love school so much, they will be sad they can't come on the weekends!
    I was born and raised in Seattle.  I am the oldest of 3 children. I have 1 younger sister and brother. I have always wanted to be a teacher. I started working with children at a young age. From babysitting at 11, to working at a daycare in high school, to becoming a nanny in college, I loved interacting with little ones! I attended Northwest University in Kirkland, majoring in Elementary Education and minoring in Psychology. This past summer, I celebrated my 20th wedding anniversary with my amazing husband Danny. I have 2 children, Madelyn who is 13 and is in the 8th grade at Chief Kanim and Oliver who is 6 and will be in 1st grade here at FCES! I enjoying hiking, digital scrapbooking, and reading but my most favorite thing to do is just hang out with my family. (Especially in Disneyland!)
