My name is Kim Garvey and I teach 6th Grade at Central Manor Elementary. I have a smart and fun husband named Bob and three awesome kids, Bobby, Jack, and Maggie.
I graduated from Penn Manor High School in 1990 and went to Penn State University. I majored in Broadcast media and was a televsion ratings researcher for CBS. Then I went back to school to Millersville University and got my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education. I taught 6th grade at Penn Manor and 7th grade in California. I took a break from teaching to have my kids and while I was at home I completed my doctorate in Educational Leadership from Immaculata University.
I have a passion for middle school children and for learning. I like to work on finding new ways to use technology in the classroom. I also incorporate Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People into our daily classroom. This is a great age to really learn how be a goal setter and raise the bar of success!
I really enjoy sports and I get to watch a lot of them now that my children play sports. I love Penn State football and to watch rugby whenever I can. I love to bike and swim. I enjoy reading, making cakes with my daughter Maggie and hiking!
