Ms. Kim Zimmer

As a Technology Integration Specialist for Avoca School District, Vail Mountain School, and now, Aspen School District, I have spent my 15-year career supporting educators in grades K-12 with innovative teaching. As a curriculum developer and teacher of technology, STEAM, multimedia, and design thinking courses, I help develop confidence and leadership abilities in students while creating pathways to future careers and interests. I have facilitated the creation of school makerspaces, innovative learning spaces, sponsored innovation festivals, and conferences, and traveled both domestically and abroad with students to help them develop new outlooks and cultural perspectives.  At Aspen High School, I teach Broadcast Journalism to high school students and provide ongoing professional development and technology support to teachers in grades K-12. More recently, I have created systems for successful remote learning as COVID has caused us to be ready for anything...PIVOT can be heard frequently from the Principals at Aspen High School and my job is to help teachers pivot!
