Ms. Kim Aycock
My name is Kim Aycock and I'm thrilled to be working with your child at KMS this year. I am a Special Education teacher and have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Special Education. I am highly qualified to teach grades K-12 with a multi-categorial classification. This year I will be teaching Learning Strategies and co-teaching Math for grades 7-8. I am also the department head for Special Education at KMS.
I can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, which is the best method of contact for me.
To provide you with some background, I have worked for Aiken County in the Department of Special Programs since 2004. From 2004-2010, I worked in the Autism Program as a lead therapist for both Applied Behavior Therapy (ABT) and Social Behavior Therapy (SBT). In May 2010, I graduated from USC Aiken with a degree in Special Education. This is my tenth year teaching Special Education in Aiken County. I have taught students with moderate disabilities, severe disabilities, mild disabilities, as well as students with a variety of disabilities within the resource and inclusion settings. I believe that all students are unique, special, and capable of learning. All students, regardless of disability, talent, or attitude should be treated with respect and be allowed to participate in events and activities to the best of their abilities.
I was born in Buckhannon, WV but grew up in Myrtle Beach, SC. I have a daughter with autism who is my pride and joy. I currently live in Aiken, SC with my husband, daughter, two dogs, one cat, and some fish.
I hope that everyone has a wonderful & relaxing summer. My plans are to relax at home with my family, go swimming, and take a family vacation in July to Edisto Beach. I would like to visit family in Kentucky & West Virginia but will play it by ear due to COVID-19.
I anticipate a similar KMS schedule for 2020-2021 as 2019-2020, but these specifics have not been released yet. I will post them as soon as they're finalized.
