Ms. Kimberly Gaines
My name is Kimberly Gaines. I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia. I moved to New Bern in August 2018, about 6 weeks before Hurricane Florence. I have 3 children and 1 grandchild. I taught in Georgia for 10 years before moving to North Carolina. I have been teaching in New Bern for 2 years. I love the community and this area is absolutely beautiful! I graduated from the University of West Georgia in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and I am certified to teach K-6. I have taught every grade except 6th. My family and I love dogs (we have 2) and going to the beach! I also love to read and learn new things. I always tell my students that one of my goals is to learn something new each and every day.
