Ms. Kimberly Zohfeld
Hello, my name is Kimberly Zohfeld, my students call me Mrs. Kim. I was born in Washington, D.C. on an army base. We moved to Illinois when I was four and I have been here ever since. I attended Nathan Hale Elementary School in Crestwood. Upon graduating, I attended Alan B. Shepard High School in Palos Heights.
After graduating from high school, I went to Eureka College, in Eureka Illinois, where I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a minor in Science and endorsements in math, language arts, and political science.
After graduating from Eureka College, I was an individual aide for an autistic 9th graders in Petersburg for one year. The following two years I was an individual aide for two autistic 2nd graders, in Catham, Illinois. In 2001, I was a special education teacher in a community based education class for grades K-3. In this classroom I taught six children life skills. In 2002 I moved back to Chicago and taught fifth grade at Calumet Park Elementary School.
Finally, I accepted a position at Immaculate Conception SChool and I have been here ever since. In the ten years at Immaculate I have been the school wide science teacher, seventh grade teacher for three years, and the eighth grade teacher. This year I am the eighth grade teacher, middle school science and social studies teacher.
I love working here and now my three children attend this school as well!!
