Kim has worked as both an administrator and a teacher of children birth through fifth grade. She discovered the power of Conscious Discipline while serving as an early childhood educator in an inclusive mental health setting. It soon became her passion to share its transformative and empowering message with as many children, parents and educators as possible.

While working as a kindergarten educator, Kim was named the 1999-2000 North Carolina Teacher of the Year. This honor was presented by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction and endorsed by the United States Department of Education and United States Superintendent of Schools.
