About Me

My name is Kimberlee Fulbright. My husband, Shannon and daughter, Chloe and I reside in Lavonia. Additionally, my stepdaughter (1st grade teacher at CESP), Samantha Berryhill, and her husband, Austin, and our grandson, Renn, reside in Lavonia. I have a passion for teaching children and count it an honor and blessing to do so. In the midst of being a wife, mom, and teacher, I enjoy spending time with my family, creating digital items, playing board games, solving word puzzles, fishing, riding on the boat at the lake, reading my Bible, pinning on Pinterest, and playing with my cats (Erin, Caysee, Ryker, and Rylee).

My Teaching Philosophy

I love to teach because each of my students are special and unique in their own way. It is important to me that each child has the opportunity to learn in a safe, nurturing environment and also learn to their fullest potential. Making learning enjoyable and meaningful through building positive relationships is a top priority of mine, as well as, to ensure that each child continues their lifelong learning journey with a positive attitude!
