Mrs. Kimberly McSweeney
Hello! My name is Kimberly McSweeney and I am very excited to be your child's First Grade teacher. This will be my 20th year as an educator and my 17th year teaching for NEISD. I have taught at Steubing Ranch for 3 years. Our campus is a very happy place to work and be a part of! Prior to my first year of teaching, I studied and earned my degree from Texas State University in San Marcos when it was in its' last year known as Southwest Texas State. Go Bobcats!
When I am not at work, I can be found spending time with my husband, Will and my son, Isaac! We enjoy swimming, riding bikes, fresh air and the sun. Sometimes we run. I use to run a lot and I still enjoy it. We cheer on the Boston Red Sox and the UT Longhorns and we cheer pretty loudly! I love the New England states. My husband is from Vermont, so we travel there each summer to visit family, the beaches of the East Coast, and go sailing. I would love to own my own sailboat, but that is mostly a dream!
This summer was a great time to refresh, but it is time to get back to work! I always find it so exciting to return, decorate my classroom, and have everything ready to meet my new group of students. I just know that whatever this year brings us, it is going to be a fabulous and successful one indeed! Please know that I am here for any questions that you may have in helping your child have a meaningful year in First Grade!
