              I would like to introduce myself......My name is Kim Corbi.  I attended West Chester University for Elementary Education. I received my Master's Degree from Immaculata University in Counseling Psychology.  I have my Elementary and Secondary School Counseling Certificates.  
            I have been with the Upper Merion Area School District since 1999 working as a school counselor in the Guidance Office.  Beginning 2021-2022 school year, I will be working in a new role as teacher for the  5-8 Leadership Course. I very excited for this opportunity to get into the classroom, something that I have always enjoyed.  I now get to combine my experience as a school counselor with teaching - what a combination!!
    My hobbies are anything that has to do with creating or designing. I love to paint (on canvas, walls :-), colored pencil paintings, working with wood, digital photography and general crafting. I just love learning new skills....next venture....wood burning.
    I want students to always try new things....there is a hidden talent below the surface they haven't discovered yet. They will never know unless they keep learning and trying new things...  
              On a personal note,......I  reside in Chester County.  I have two children - who are not children at all... my daughter is 19 and my son is 25.  My daughter recently graduated high school and will be attending West Chester University for Studio Art and American Sign Language.  My son graduated from West Chester University with his degree in Elementary Education (following in my footsteps) and a minor in Special Education.  He is currently teaching in Delaware. 
    I recently discovered a talent for creating colored pencil paintings and have really enjoyed that. I also love photography, oil and acrylic painting, drawing, and reading. My favortite hobby though is....hobbies. I am constantly learning a new one. It is the learning part that I think I enjoy the most.
    So students (and parents), I say to you....try to do something you have never done before.....  Whether it is a building, playing an instrument, a craft or trade, piece of technology, or topic........you should always stretch yourself to learn something new.
