Meet Principal Kimberly Springer

Kim Springer
What is your philosophy about education and its importance?
"I believe that all scholars are capable of learning and have the right to access to rigorous academic content. In addition, I believe that a good relationship between a teacher and scholars is built on a strong foundation of mutual understanding, respect, and trust. In order to effectively assess our scholars' wants and needs, I must first understand them and where they are coming from. Without relationships, it will be difficult to teach scholars/" 
What makes Pilgrim Lutheran School special? 
"At Pilgrim Lutheran, we follow the model of Christ, which is to love each child in spite of (1 Corinthians 13:4-7). This mindset guides our dedicated staff to tap into resources to improve the quality of the work life for students". 
What do you love about what you do?
“I love that the impact of my work is visible. You see where scholars begin and how they learn and develop under your guidance. It provides an opportunity to minister and make a difference in the lives of my scholars. I love helping my scholars understand the content and I love when I see the light bulb come on, the moment the connection is made."

What is your hope for LUMIN scholars as they grow?
“My biggest hope is that not only are scholars academically successful, but that they garnered so much information and principles at Pilgrim that they are change agents in our society, not only when they leave but also while they are at school. My hope is that we are grooming professionals and well-rounded, successful leaders.”

Favorite bible verse?
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” - Romans 8:28

In your free time, what do you like to do?
