Mrs. Kim Hutchens

I love being a part of the Cherokee Bend family and teaching Enrichment.  This is year #25 for me and my 6th year at the Bend.  Time flies when you are having fun with kids! 

I attended Samford University where I earned a bachelor’s degree in secondary/middle school language arts, masters’ degrees in gifted education and instructional leadership, and an Ed. S. is in teacher leadership. I also earned my National Board Certification 2003 and renewed in 2013.

I am married, have four children, and two dogs.  I enjoy traveling to the beach and the mountains.  In the fall, I love cheering for Alabama football. Roll Tide!  Working in the arts--acting, singing, directing, and choreographing in the Birmingham theatre community is also one of my passions.

I am super excited about working creatively to explore great units with my Enrichment students.
