Hello! I am Kim Balkum and this is my 20th year of teaching.  I have taught the majority of my career at UCHS with a brief stint at Foster Park Elementary. Along with English, I have also taught Special Education. I am a lifelong resident of Union. I graduated from Union High School in 1992 and graduated from the University of South Carolina - Columbia in 1996.  I completed my graduate and master's degrees at Converse College.  I have been married to my husband, Bill, for 20 years.  We have three boys: Will (15), Ethan (13), and Ben (7).
