KIM TEAMER

SUMMER PROGRAM DIRECTOR

Data Clerk and Campus Mentor Coordinator at Degan Elementary

“Mama Teamer” or “Sis. Kim”, as she is called by so many of the youth that she works with, was Youth Director at Grace Missionary Baptist Church in Lewisville, TX for seven years where she implemented programs like AWANA, Children’s Church, and the annual Back to School Gospel Explosion. She continues to work with students via Bridges Summer Camp.  She contributes to Lewisville HS as the President of the LHS Theater Booster Club and the Hospitality Coordinator of the LHS Choir Booster Club, where her son also participates in those activities. She also has two older sons, 26 and 27, who graduated from Lewisville HS as well.

 

Kim loves seeing the children learn and grow during the summer program.  They get to continue to grow their brains during the summer in math, science, reading and bible studies all while having fun.  She loves seeing the impact that Bridges has on their lives.
