Kim Lavado


I have 25+ years in K-12 public and parochial school settings teaching multiple subjects and developing Spanish language programs. I also have served as the principal of a Pk-8 Lutheran school and am currently working at Concordia University Chicago leading courses for undergraduate teacher candidates.

I became a teacher because I enjoy the energy and enthusiasm of students as well as helping them to learn new things and discover what they are capable of.
