Kimberly Truesdell

I am so thankful to be your child’s new kindergarten teacher and excited for this opportunity at East Clayton Elementary.  My name is Kimberly Truesdell and this is my 12th year teaching. In January, my husband and I celebrated our 32nd anniversary and have three children, Taylor, Jarred, and Tiffany. We are originally from California and came to North Carolina in 2013 where we were stationed at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base. My husband retired after 30 years in the Air Force, and we decided to make NC home. We moved to Clayton in 2017 to be closer to my husband’s job in Raleigh.  We have lived in CA, England, Germany, the Azores, and NC. We love to travel and spend time with family when we can.

I am looking forward to working with your child and meeting you soon. Our class is using ClassDojo, so please feel free to send me a message, or you can e-mail me at: kimberlytruesdell@johnston.k12.nc.us
