Mrs. Kim Margetjak


      I was born and raised in Cookeville, TN, and graduated from Tennessee Tech University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education.  During college, I met my husband, Brett.  He is a pastor, and we have been married for 24 years.  We have two daughters and a toy poodle.  Our oldest daughter, Lauren, is following the family legacy at Tennessee Tech University majoring in Special Education.  Our youngest, Lainey, is studying Marketing at The University of Tennessee.  Our precious sixteen-year-old toy poodle, Peyton, is named after the one and only Peyton Manning because we love the Tennessee VOLS!  Recently, I graduated with my Master's of Education in Teacher Leadership from Walden University.  This is my 18th year of teaching, and in addition to teaching in Tennessee, I previously taught in Kentucky and Virginia.  My passion is building positive relationships with students and parents to foster a learning environment that promotes success for every student.  I look forward to partnering with you this year on your child's 3rd Grade Learning Safari!
