 Kim Bearden, Co-founder, Executive Director, and

   Academy, an innovative middle school and educator
   training facility in Atlanta. 
Over the past nine years, over 36,000 educators from around
   the world have visited Kim’s classroom at the Academy and have attended her workshops    to learn better ways to engage students, promote academic rigor, and create a          climate and culture that promotes success.


    Kim was recently honored at the White House for being inducted into to the National Teachers Hall          of Fame. She was selected from over 70,000 nominations to be honored as the Disney American
   Teacher Awards Outstanding Middle School Humanities Teacher. The Milken Family Foundation

   teachers as Teacher of the Year in Cobb County, Georgia. Women Works Media Group named her
   one of Georgia’s Most Powerful and Influential Women.

    Over the past twenty-nine years, she has been a teacher, instructional lead teacher, curriculum
    director, school board member, staff development trainer, and middle school principal.

   Kim’s book, Crash Course: The Life Lessons My Students Taught Me, made several bestseller lists, the
   LA Times Bestseller List being among them.
