It’s very important to learn from feedback and always keep iterating to get better. I love to get honest feedback that helps me to improve. It’s also really COOL to get feedback that shows you did something right…something that had value for someone else!
Nice things other people have said about me.
Despite her not being in a traditional classroom, Kim Estes is the best teacher I have had in recent memory. she has helped me shape a vision for what a 21st century curriculum, classroom, and campus ought to be. Kim has shown her willingness to “get the job done” no matter what it takes by helping train me and other teachers on her days off.

Kim has been critical to the development and implementation of creative and authentic learning in the district. Her knowledge of curriculum and technology help campus staff weave technology into lessons and projects that make them exciting and dynamic. She also serves as a fountain of knowledge for best practices and methods to use technology.

Every time you meet with Kim she brings her knowledge, skills, and new ideas to the table. From, “My Chromebook won’t let me watch this video,” to the implementation of augmented reality, Kim was with us every step of the way. My teaching is better because of Kim Estes. My students were all positively affected by Kim Estes. Kim Estes is an extremely valuable asset, whose leadership and support enhance the entire Burleson ISD. As for our team, we hold Kim in the highest regards and consider her to be one of us. Kim is our “Fifth Beatle.”

Her innovative use of technology inspires and brings joy to hundreds of district employees, which, in turn, inspires and brings joy to thousands of students. From the tech savvy teacher who is yearning for more, to the 30 year veteran who is nervous using email, Kim brings about a confidence to fulfill all needs. Her passion goes so much beyond her job description. She will go above and beyond to assist me, as a campus instructional leader. If I didn’t have a campus to run, I could write about her for hours.

Over the course of 11 years working with Kim in various projects to promote learning among a wide range of students, I have found her singularly focused upon the mantra of “the tool doesn’t matter if the learning doesn’t happen”. I hear teachers at every campus on which she serves speak, without exception of her patience, value, and determination to help them succeed in promoting student learning.

Kim has taken me from basic applications to being able to imagine that I can create a unit that incorporates technology to connect with other campuses all over the country. Kim’s leadership in creating classrooms that not only use technology but deepen the learning because of the technology is undeniable.

The leadership qualities that Kim displays through the implementation and development of technology is amazing. From using it herself, to teaching staff how to use it, to instructing students on proper techniques, Kim goes above and beyond to make sure that everyone is supported in the areas of technology that they need. On top of this, the creativity of his woman is amazing.
On paper, Kim is an educator’s dream. It is however, her strength of character and natural charisma that, when combined with her innate intelligence and work ethic, make her a complete candidate. As most in the profession know, there is an intrinsic quality in all good educators that involves the coalescence of a broad knowledge base, genuine passion for subject, and a strong sense of self. I believe Kim has all these traits.

Kim’s patience with people and enthusiasm for technology of all kinds encourage teachers to embrace technology for which they were previously petrified. She willingly and energetically shares her passion for helping teachers create a tech savvy learning environment built on true use of technology, not mere substitution of paper/pen assignments.

As a result of Kim’s support and expertise I have gone from being a teacher that rarely uses technology to a teacher who is considered by my peers to be one of the campus experts on implementing technology into the learning process.
