Welcome to Van Buren Middle School!  Thanks for visiting Kettering City Schools!

My name is Kim Adams and I teach 6th grade Social Studies.  I've taught at Van Buren for 17 years and I absolutely love it here!  I graduated from Bethel High School, which is a small school in Tipp City, Ohio (K-12!).  I attended the University of Dayton where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Sociology.  I continued at U.D. where I received my Master's Degree in Education.  Teaching 6th grade is a lot of fun and I look forward to meeting new kids each year!

I've been married since 2005 and in 2008 my husband and I welcomed twin girls!  Soon after, we welcomed another daughter!  Three kids keep us very busy!  We live in the country and have dogs, cats, and chickens!  My main hobbies are sports.  I played volleyball in college and continue to play as much as I can.  I also love basketball, tennis, and softball.  We are an active family and you can usually find us hiking, biking, or running around a park on any given weekend. 

Thanks for stopping by! If you have any questions or want to visit my classroom, please email me!
