Welcome to Taylor! I am Kim Jeffus and this is my 7th year as a preschool teacher. I spent 3 years in a small school district with preschool and have been with Des Moines Public Schools for 4 years. I graduated from UNI with a BA in Early Childhood and Special Education Endorsement and received my Master's and Reading Endorsement from Morningside College. I am excited to get to know my families and have a great year. When I am not in school I enjoy playing cello and volunteering with Special Olympics!
