Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Kim Breitenbach
I am Mrs. Breitenbach, and I am SO excited to be a part of Polenta Elementary School's second grade team! Prior to moving to North Carolina, my family and I spent the last 30 years making our home in Tampa, FL. I am originally from East Tennessee, where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration in Marketing. In my first job in Tampa, I worked for GTE Data Services in their computer rooms and in their National Support Center. After having children, I went to work for Hilton Hotels Corporation and worked in sales for about 8 years. I then transitioned into the school system in Tampa, where I have worked as a secretary, an attendance clerk, and finally, a teacher of gifted children in grades K - 5. I taught for 8 years in Tampa before moving to North Carolina. My husband and I have 3 children who are in college, now, and we have 2 dogs and one cat who complete our family! My hobbies include going to the beach, spending time in the mountains, riding my bike, walking, baking and trying new recipes, and reading. I enjoy seeing children learn and experience those "lightbulb" moments that make great learning memories! I am excited to get to know your children as we learn and experience 2nd grade together!
