I live in Winchester with my husband and I taught kindergarten in Winchester for many years. This is my second year teaching in Clarke county and I love it here! I have a step son, Landon, who is 13 years old; a step daughter, Audra, who is 9 years old; and a baby boy, Theo, who is now 5 months old! As a family we love taking trips to the beach together, riding our bikes, and playing with our one-year-old puppy Jake!

I graduated from James Madison University with my teaching degree and completed my masters degree as a reading specialist from Shenandoah University . I love teaching kindergarten, and my favorite part is teaching children to read! It's such an exciting time, with so many changes that happen throughout the school year. I'm looking forward to a great year with all of our students!

Hello! My name is Mrs. Kilmer, I am very excited to be entering my third year in Kindergarten here at D.G. Cooley. Prior to teaching at D.G. Cooley, I taught third grade in Frederick County. In my classroom, we love to have fun and get a little silly. I like to make my lessons fun and engaging for my students. I strive to push my students to be the best that they can be!
