Mrs. Carr-Williams has some challenges with being an aide.

“Right now, I am still getting acquainted with everyone and learning new programs,” Mrs. Carr-Williams said.

    Growing up in the circus must of been so interesting. I’m very glad our new teacher arrived at Kimmons, I hope she’s here to stay.- Jada

    This article caught my attention because I was interested in how Mrs. Carr went from working at the circus to teaching children at school. The adaptation that takes shows real courage and commitment. I hope you stay apart of our family. -Jacklyn
