Hello!  My name is Kim Brunson and I began my career here at Fairview back in 1982 as a kindergarten student!  I went on to be a proud Zizzer, graduating with the class of 1995.  I received my Bachelor’s in Early Childhood/Elementary Education from Arkansas State University and began teaching in 2000.  I also received my Master’s in Curriculum and
Instruction from William Woods University.  I taught kindergarten and first grade for 13 years, and in 2013 began teaching 6th-8th grade Reading Intervention, where I feel in love with these middle-schoolers!

My husband, Shawn, and I have been blessed with three wonderful daughters: Addison, MacKenzie, and Emersyn, who keep us going all the time, from basketball to volleyball and anything in between.  If needed, you could probably find us in a gym somewhere, watching our girls do what they love! We love being outdoors, especially enjoying the lake, ocean, or poolside with family and friends!  Family is the best!!

I absolutely LOVE what I do: helping to educate our children, our future! I always tell my students, once you are in my class, you are like one of my children and will always be one of mine for life.  In my opinion, there couldn’t be a more rewarding profession out there!
