Meet the Faces of Spicewood #63: Kimberly Robertson

Dear families and community members,

Please meet one of our fabulous PE teachers, Mrs. Kimberly Robertson!

Mrs. Robertson was born in Garland, Texas where her father still resides. Her father was in military growing up so moving frequently was just something that she did every couple years even as an adult. When teaching in San Antonio, a friend of hers called one day and asked if she wanted to come to Austin for an interview and the rest is history. :) Her husband, Bill Robertson, is a high school football defensive coordinator; she just loves Friday night football games! She and her husband together have two beautiful children. Her kindergarten daughter, Peyton, attends Herrington ES in the district. Her son, Walker, is only a year old! Her kids are highlight of her day as she gets excited to watch them learn and grow. Her career started as a 1st grade teacher in 1999 in Midland, Texas. She then taught 6th and 8th grade PE teacher in South San Antonio for two years. She has been girls assistant athletic coordinator and coach in various high schools for 10 years. She has also taught Health and Reading class to special education students at a high school. Her passion was always to come back to elementary to teach PE and she landed at Spicewood this school year in October as we received an additional allocation. Mexican food is her favorite. She loves pink. Her favorite book is Oh The Places You'll Go authored by Dr. Seuss; she loves reading this to her daughter. :)

"The faculty here is just amazing and our students are so kind and caring. Most favorite of all is the positive energy around here," shared Mrs. Robertson. "Everyone works together to be the best," she added. Going off from our theme this year, she'd like to tell our students to always choose kind.

Two days before school is out, our PE teachers were working fiercely with our students to get them participate in physical activities that are fun and engaging. Mrs. Robertson is a true trooper for her commitment to our children; even after a gruesome knee surgery, she came back just after a couple of days and has been working with our children on a wheel chair and on crutches. We're so very grateful for her dedication and passion; it makes a big difference here at Spicewood!
