About Me

Hi!  My name is Christine Kim, and I will be your 5th grade teacher!  I am so excited for this upcoming year! I know it will be a great year with lots of learning and fun!

I am originally from Massachusetts and had lived there my whole life before moving to Austin! My husband and I met there while he attended graduate school, and in 2013 we got married and moved here! And although I miss having seasons and eating fresh seafood (that clam chowdah :D), we enjoy being in Austin!

I have subbed at a number of schools in Round Rock ISD before coming to Patsy Sommer. This is my 3rd year in 5th and am excited for another year in the grade!

We have two furry “babies,” Miles (Shiba Inu) and Korra (Mini Australian Shepard). Miles is names after the Denver Broncos mascot because my husband is from Denver and is a die-hard football fan. And Korra… is named Korra because we liked the name. 🙂 They are an energetic duo who keep us busy and active. This year we also welcomed our first baby, Isaiah!

I’m really excited to work with you and your family this year as well as getting to know you all more! I hope it is a fun and memorable year for us all!
