About Ms. Kimberly Schiller

I have been teaching middle school English since 2003. I started my teaching career at a gifted and talented school on the Lower East Side of New York City and I learned a great deal from my experience there. In 2005, I began teaching in Huntington, New York on Long Island. I love teaching middle school students, especially eighth graders. Their energy is frenetic, and when channeled properly, you can get a lot done and really inspire kids.

At school, I am actively involved with curriculum planning and technology. I also earned my SMART Board user.certification last year. In addition to teaching students, I conduct professional development sessions focusing on the Common Core and Edmodo.

Outside of teaching my other passions include music, history (particularly labor history, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, and women's history), traveling and the city. I always try to think of innovative ways to include these in my classroom. I am involved with the Remember the Triangle Fire Coalition, the Frances Perkins Forum and the New York Labor History Association.
