Welcome to Third Grade!

Welcome to Room 131
 2017 - 2018

     Hi, my name is Kim Timmerman, and I have been a teacher at Hawthorne for 24 years. I have taught third grade for 22 of those years, and I can truly say that I love third grade and third graders!  I am originally from Oakland, California, and I am a UCLA alumnus. I have two sons, Evan and Ryan.  Evan is a senior at  BHHS, and Ryan is a freshman at BHHS.  I love to travel, and I love to read.   All my students know that my favorite children's author is Kate DiCamillo.

Third grade is a crucial year in the bridge between primary and intermediate grades. I strive to teach my students the skills necessary to become independent thinkers and problem-solvers who not only take responsibility for their own learning but also enjoy the journey.  I would love for my students to leave my classroom having gained a lifelong love of reading.

I hope to see you soon in Room 131!
