EdTech 521: Introduction and Descriptive Picture

Kim Hefty intro pic


My name is Kim Hefty and I live in Sammamish, Washington. For the past 22 years I have taught high school and college level mathematics. 11 years ago I started a private tutoring business. I specialize in working with public high school students who are taking math courses “on-line”. I work closely with both the students and the local school district. I typically work with 40-50 students per week.

I am just over half way done with the MET program and, hopefully, this is my last summer taking courses.   My tech skills are dramatically better than when I started but I still have room for growth.  I am taking 2 courses this summer but hope I still will have some time to “play.”

I have 2 children ages 13 and 22. My daughter just graduated from Elon University in North Carolina. My son plays competitive golf and premiere soccer so most of my weekends are spent at either soccer or golf tournaments.
I love Seattle sports!  I am an avid Seahawks fan and I can’t wait for the Seattle Sounders to win the MLS Cup!!  I attend every Sounders game that I can!

My self-portrait is intentionally a collage of photographs with captions that hopefully show my personality and what I do!
