Kim Riffle


Kim received her bachelor’s degree from Rollins College and her master’s in Education Media Design and Technology at Full Sail University, both in Winter Park, Florida.

She is passionate about teaching because she loves seeing the spark when students “get it,” especially if school has previously been difficult for them. She has mostly worked with at-risk youth and youth who struggle with their mental health. She thrives when students enjoy coming to class and look forward to learning.

“Teaching and interacting with young people is so exciting because I am constantly learning from them.”

She has three adorable cats – Sharkie, Cheddar, and Radar, and enjoys reading, watching movies, seeing live bands, and spending time with friends. She loves the mountains, and spends as much time in nature as possible.
