Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. 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 last year. 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, 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!
