Welcome to the STEM Lab!

My name is Kim Sigsbee and I am so incredibly excited to be the STEM Lab teacher at Bells Ferry!  Each student in the school will be able to visit the STEM Lab as part of the specials rotation.  We will be working on projects that require the Engineering Design Process to learn more about the standards taught in the classroom.

Here is a little bit about me.  This will be my 20th year teaching, and my sixth year at Bells Ferry.  I previously taught 4th grade for two years and third grade for twelve years in Fulton County.  I live in Cobb County and was tired of commuting, so I decided to join the amazing staff at Bells Ferry!  I am very excited to be returning to the wonderful faculty and family here.  I absolutely love STEM – it is filled with so many challenges, but also a lot of fun!  I know we are going to have an amazing year!

When I am not busy being a teacher, I am busy being a mommy!  I have two amazing girls.  Natalie is 12 years old and is a seventh grader at Daniell Middle School.  Vivian is 8 and is in 3rd grade at Bells Ferry.  I also have a husband named James.  I love to share stories about my family with the students!  I hope you can get to know my family just as I will get to know yours.

I have many hobbies that I enjoy doing when I am not being a teacher or mommy.  My favorite thing to do is read.  I am always reading and have a hard time stopping late at night when I should be sleeping!  I also love to travel and have been to many amazing places, such as Australia, Hawaii, Italy, Mexico, and Alaska.  Although I love the Gators, watching them play football has not been that fun lately!

My goal for this year is to work together with you to help your child reach their fullest potential.  I hope to see them grow both socially and academically, and learn skills that will help them be life-long learners.
