Kim Diaz comes from New York, where, after earning her BA in Sociology and Women’s Studies from Wesleyan University, she spent some time as a diversity recruiter for Accenture. However, she knew she was meant for other things and switched to teaching, where she taught second and fourth grades at Trevor Day School.
She earned her MS in Early Childhood and Elementary Education at Bank Street College of Education and later moved to Los Angeles and taught third grade at Oakwood School for another four years. After two years staying home with her son, she combined her love of being with her children and teaching, becoming a part-time teacher at Rose Scharlin Cooperative Nursery School before coming to Sequoyah. When she is not at school, Kim enjoys time with her family, playing games, and generally driving each other nuts. On the rare occasion she is not surrounded by children, she is reading, crocheting, or running.
