Mrs. Polanec

Hello! My name is Kimberly Polanec and I am the newest member of the fifth grade team at Abbot-Downing School.

I graduated from UNH in 2005 with a Masters degree in Elementary Education and the following summer was hired by the Concord School District as a 4th grade teacher. In 2006 I was asked to teach first grade, and have been in this position for the last 9 years.

When the opportunity presented itself to teach fifth grade I was a little nervous, but mostly excited and energized to try something different!  I look forward to working with older students, and teaching a few of my former first graders!

When I'm not teaching I enjoy spending time with my 7-year-old son Kyler and my two dogs, Sasha and Percey.  My husband Chris is not so bad to hang out with once in awhile too!  I also enjoy reading, outdoor activities such as running, swimming and hiking, and practicing "hot yoga."
