Mrs. Kym Gloska
Hi, and welcome to my page!
My name is Kym Gloska and I am one of the 7th grade Panther Team teachers. I teach Pre Algebra and math. This is my 25th year teaching at West Middle! I obviously love what I do! (Or I wouldn't have stayed here as long as I have!)
Some things about me: I am a military brat. My father was in the United States Air Force and we moved every 3 years. Besides North Carolina, I have lived in Texas, Ohio, South Carolina, as well as in Germany. I found that by moving around a lot, I have a different perspective on things than others around here, for one I don't like Sundrop! Mountain Dew girl here!! No seriously, I wanted something that others have around here.....roots, someplace I could call my home. I have accomplished this by living in the wonderful community of Vale, with my husband, Jimmy. We also have 2 children, Megan and James, who both graduated from West Lincoln High School and are currently living in Boone.
One thing that I hope all can say about me is I have good work ethic. I believe that everyone should always do their best. I work hard at what I do and expect my students to give me their best effort as well. My goal is to instill in my students a life long love of learning and to be passionate about life.
Places you might find me: In the school gym ... I love volleyball and have coached here for over 18 years. You might also find me at church, usually hanging around with the youth, no surprise there. I also live on a farm! Yep... cows, horses, chickens, and goats. Yes, even a cat and several dogs! So much of my time I spend at home with my family on the farm. We also like to do things as a family --whether it is camping, cooking out, and getting up hay (wait... don't love that).
If you see me in public, come by and say hi!
I am looking forward to and I am excited about the upcoming year!
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,
