Mrs. Cheek's St. Mary's Catholic School Junior High English and Language Arts, 8th grade homeroom
Hi, I'm Kim Cheek. Just wanted to share a little bit about me and my life. I was born many years ago in a far away land called England. My father was in the Air Force and we, my twin brother Mark and I, were born overseas. We were able to live in several states including Maine, Florida, Texas and Illinois. I grew up in southern Illinois in a town called Mascoutah, 30 miles east of St. Louis!! GO CARDS!!!
I received my education degree from Eureka College. My first job was at Pontiac Township High School, where I taught English for 14 years full time and 3 years part time. I was a coach at PTHS as well, varsity softball, girls basketball - Freshmen, JV, and Varsity.
I have been blessed with two awesome children Peyton and Trinity. Peyton is a freshman this year at PTHS and Trinity is a 4th grader at SMS. We have 2 dogs Carli and Bailey and 2 cats Rosie and Boots, This is my fourth year at St. Mary's and I am thrilled to be teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th grade English/Language Arts. I am the 8th grade homeroom teacher, Speech Coach, and a grade girl's basketball coach. I love reading, spending time with my kids (yours and mine), and attending all of the many activities at SMS.
