Welcome to Mrs. Heath's First Grade

My name is Kimberly Heath. I grew up not far down the road in Senatobia, Mississippi. I graduated high school in 1986. I then went to college at Mississippi University for Women. Yes, I am a "W" girl. I got a degree in Broadcasting with an emphasis in Radio and TV. I decided that I was not happy in this field, so I went back to MUW and got a degree in Elementary Education. I guess I should have realized this earlier, because when I was a little girl I would play school and teach my dolls and the neighborhood kids. I then went on to get my Master's degree in Gifted Studies. In 2001, I became a National Board Certified Teacher. I have been teaching first grade for 22 years. The first five years I taught in Columbus, Mississippi. Then I taught fourteen years  at Olive Branch Elementary.  I joined the Overpark staff and became a Mustang four years ago.  So this will be my 23rd year to teach. I love children and I love what I do!!!

Now a little bit about my family. I am married and have been for 24 years. My husband's name is Kenny. He works at CVS/Pharmacy, as a district manager. Right now he is over 19 stores in North Mississippi and 4 stores in the Arkansas area, with 4 more coming this year.  I have two children, one daughter and one son. Kendyl is my daughter. She is 19 years old. She will be a sophomore at the University of Memphis She will be majoring in Elementary Education.  My son Kyle is 13 and will be in the 8th grade at CHMS. He is a Weeblo Scout at Maples with Pack 234.

In my spare time I love to shop, travel, and spend time with my family.  I have a bucket list of places to visit as the years go by.  As for the shopping, well I LOVE it!!! My husband has another opinion of my shopping.

We attend Maples Methodist Church here in Olive Branch. Quite a few people call it the church on the hill. Several years ago my Sunday school class was able to install a bell system. If you have not heard it, you need to. The next time you are driving around OB close to downtown, roll down your windows and listen for the church bells. They usually play on the hour. They sound so beautiful and I am so proud to have been a part of something so special for the town of Olive Branch.
