Mrs. Kimberly Adams

My name is Kimberly Michele Adams and this is my seventeenth year at Richlands Elementary School. I was in the Marine Corps from 1984-1988 where I met my husband, Ed. We have been married for 38 years and have 3 daughters, 3 granddaughters, and 1 grandson. I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a BS in Business Administration with an emphasis in Management in May 1995. I attended the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and received my certificate in Elementary Education in Dec. 2001. I taught 4th grade in California from 2001 to 2005 until we transferred to South Carolina. In South Carolina, I was a substitute teacher for the Department of Defense (DOD) schools on Laurel Bay. I filled four long-term positions while we were stationed there. I taught PE for the K-2 school and a 6th grade math class the first year we were there. During the 2006-2007 school year I taught Guidance the first half of the year and from January until the end of the year I taught a self-contained special needs class.  My husband retired from the Marine Corps after 24 years of service in August 2007 and we decided to settle in Richlands. I taught 4th grade for 5 years at Richlands Elementary and then taught 5th grade for 8 years. In 2021, I moved to 4th grade and work with an amazing Team!  I look forward to an exciting year at Richlands Elementary School!
