Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Kimberly Beard
I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a Bachelor of Science in Education in December 2012. I have also taken some Master degree classes for Library Science through MTSU.
This will be my 11th year teaching. Middle school is my favorite, and I'm so excited to be starting my 5th year at LMS. I began my teaching career in Williamson County, TN where I taught 2, 4, 5, 6, and 7th grades. I also taught 6th grade at Heritage Elementary before 6th moved to middle school.
I am originally from Spring Hill, TN. My husband, Chad, and I moved to the Madison area in 2017 for his job. We have a 2 year old son, Carter, and a mini dachshund named Jessie. In my spare time I enjoy exercising and competing in races and triathlons. My husband and I enjoy eating out and visiting family and friends in TN. I also enjoy reading and am part of a book club that includes some other LMS teachers!

“Sixth grade Language Arts will continue students’ growth in the areas of reading, writing, listening, speaking, discussion, and reflection. Reading strategies, critical thinking skills, vocabulary building, and a continued focus on writing comprise the main elements of reading instruction. The focus for writing instruction will be narrative, informational, and argumentative writing with requirements based on Alabama College and Career Ready standards. The overall goal of the class is to increase the literacy and writing ability of students. Outside reading and summer reading are required.”(p.3 from the Madison City Schools Course Catalog)
