Kim Maher
5th Grade Teacher
South
Hello! My name is Kim Maher. What a privilege it is to partner with God, parents, and the entire Chapel Hill Christian School staff in the education of children. I graduated from The University of Akron in 1993 and have been blessed to be a teacher for 16 years in both public and private schools.  During my ten years at CHCS, I have taught at both the North and South Campus, and have had the amazing opportunity to serve at both the Amigos and San Marcos School in Guatemala. My husband, Len, and I live in Wadsworth with our two teenage daughters, Leah and Natalie, our chocolate lab Chloe, and our cat Lucy. Leah and Natalie are graduates of CHCS, and still remember their time at both campuses and Guatemala fondly. Len is a full-time Youth Pastor at Freshwater Community Church in Wadsworth.  I am so excited for the new school year of 5th Grade learning to start! I love what Ephesians 3:20 says about God and His mighty work within us. It says that He is able to do infinitely more than we can even ask or imagine. I am prayerful that He does more than what we can even ask or imagine at Chapel Hill Christian School this year, and together, we tell Him thank you. What Is Special About 5th Grade?
