Ms. Vaugeois, Maury’s new fifth grade teacher, has been teaching in DC Public Schools for over twenty years. Her own children went through the DC Public School System from pre-k through high school, so she has a long affiliation with DCPS both as a parent and as a teacher. She has a master degree in elementary education from The American University and an undergraduate degree in art history and anthropology from The George Washington University. Kim enjoys reading, travel, swimming, hiking, and drawing and painting. Her goal as a teacher is to inspire students to get excited about learning, and help them develop the skills they need to be life-long learners. She loves seeing her students get excited about something they have discovered or a connection they have made. She is especially thrilled to see them find a book they love. Kim works hard creating a classroom climate where all students feel valued and safe. She believes that teaching is at heart knowing your students and using their strengths and interests as a starting point for instruction. Kim loves teaching and getting to know her students and their families, even after many years each day is different and exciting.
