Kim Balek - 1st Grade Teacher
The Freedom School, St. Louis

Kim Balek from the Freedom School in St. Louis was highlighted this summer as a teacher who exemplified BRIE teaching. Here is what Kim shared with us about how she is working to maintain the Biblical, relational, integral and experiential parts of her classroom even though she was teaching virtually.

"I would definitely say the relationship with families was an unexpected good thing that came from distance learning.  The chance to have reconciliation with the one mom was something that I never dreamed possible.  I never before had spent time visiting students' homes but now it feels like something I want to continue doing.  I want to be able to continue having the depth of relationship with families once distance learning is not the norm.  I'm not sure how that will work with families working, but it's something I want to figure out how to make work."

Read more about what Kim did to keep BRIE as part of her online teaching this past year.
