Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Kimberly Farinas
I love being a teacher and getting to know my students, so I thought you might want to know a little bit more about me as well.
I was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida (8th generation). I have a big family and most everyone is in Pensacola, so I go back to visit as often as possible. I have three younger sisters- Kerri, Katie, and Kristen. I have two awesome nephews-Bryce (14) & Patrick (7), four sweet nieces-Chloe (9), Shelby (4), Sydney (3), and Kennedy (3 months); and another niece or nephew on the way. I have two cats, Mason (7) and Millie (6).
I have been a Gator fan my entire life, and in 1993 I moved to Gainesville to attend the University of Florida. Go Gators! I graduated in 1997 with a Bachelor’s degree in Education, and in 1998 I received a Master’s degree in Elementary Education. I knew when I was very young that I wanted to be a teacher. It is all that I ever wanted to do. This is my 23rd year of teaching, and my 22nd year at Dr. N. H. Jones.
I love the beach (day, night, sun, rain...you name it), reading, watching TV, and traveling!
