Hello! I am Kim Ropple and I will be your 5th grade teacher this year! I grew up right here in Santee where I attended Hill Creek, Rio Seco, and Santana High School. I then went on to Grossmont College, SDSU, and National University. This is my sixth year with Santee School District and my fourth year here at Carlton Hills.

    I have been married to my husband, Zak for a little over four years, and we live here in Santee. It's nice to be back living in my hometown! Earlier this year we welcomed our first child, our daughter Quinn. We also have one furbaby, our Weimaraner, Ellie.

    In my spare time  I like to go to the beach, hike, spend time with friends and family, watch the Chargers and the Padres, and look through Pintrest for new ideas for my classroom our home! I love DIY projects!
