Senora Quiles joined LCDS in 2018.  She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science from the College of William and Mary, her Master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from Virginia Tech, and a certificate in gifted education from the University of Virginia.  She is passionate about teaching Spanish and nurturing her students’ personal and academic growth. Prior to teaching, Kim lived abroad in Costa Rica and Spain. She taught Spanish for more than a decade, first with Williamsburg Public Schools and later with Loudoun County Public Schools.  In addition to teaching every level of high school Spanish, including Advanced Placement, Kim was a gifted resource teacher with LCPS. She loves to travel the world, but Barcelona is her favorite city, as it is the first Spanish city she ever visited and where she met her Catalan husband. She lives in Ashburn with her husband, two daughters (ages 13 and 10) and their golden retriever, Neula (which is a type of Spanish cookie).
