All About Kimberley Kulas

There is no friend as loyal as a book.

Who I Am

God will always come first. God is my number one priority. My very next priority is my family. I enjoy going outside on warm days, relaxing with my family, and reading a good book. I am good at learning and riding my skateboard.I am also good with little kids. I enjoy learning by doing the expiriment, but I can learn by reading as well.

These thing need to be considered when finding a job, because your job my conflict with your values, or may require skills you do not possess. Also you should be interested in your job and enjoy work.

My career as a...

Special Education Teachers for preschool teach preschool school subjects to educationally and physically handicapped students. They usually get paid about $52,480. The need for Special Ed. Teachers is rising. This is part of the Education and Training cluster.

This job is usually placed in a child friendly enivironment. Teachers work when the children are present and are there afterwords to grade papers and clean up. Some work the traditional school year, while others work the year-around school days.

How I will Get There

I want to go to Western Governors University. It is an online university, so I can stay home and save money on gas/dorm. It is also has a great program for special education.
