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 (12) & Patrick (5), and three sweet nieces-Chloe (7), Shelby (2), and Sydney (19 months). I have two cats, Mason (5) and Millie (4).
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 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 21st year of teaching, and my 20th year at Dr. N. H. Jones.
I love the beach (day, night, sun, rain...you name it), reading, watching TV, and traveling!
