Kim Gilson has had a "long and winding road" in her educational career. She began as a high school band director (just ask her about the prop that ate the marching band!) and moved on to be a math teacher after having her first child. This led to a 5-year stint as a high school assistant principal, followed by a central office position where she worked with curriculum, data, and accountability. On July 1st, 2014, she began working at the Region 10 Education Service Center in Richardson, Texas, a 45-mile commute through the heart of Dallas. The very next day, her husband died of a blood clot. Kim powered through the grief process while commuting up Central Expressway for 5 years and currently works as the Chief Academic Officer at Advantage Academy. Kim is a certified Zig Ziglar trainer and coach. Her passion is encouraging women to pursue their giftings with courage and purpose, while making them laugh in the process. You might see her at church, and Kroger afterwards, wearing a tiara to signify she IS a daughter of the King. Kim has 2 grown sons, Trent and Cade, and 4-legged canine children, Duchess and Cosmo. Her life motto is, "Go Big or Go Home."
Kim is available for leadership coaching and can be reached on FaceBook by searching Kim Stephenson Gilson or Atomic Joy.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/aneducatorslegacy/support
