    Ms. Baldenegro

    Hi! I am Kim Baldenegro. I have been part of the Frye Elementary School staff for several years. I am originally from upstate New York, but have lived in Chandler since 1978. I attended Knox Elementary, Willis Jr. High, and graduated from Chandler High School.

    Prior to teaching, I was a hair stylist for 15 years. I was self-employed so I could enjoy taking time off when my children were younger. I  have 2 beautiful children. As my children reached the school age years I wanted to spend the off time with them. Becoming a teacher was always my passion, so I decided that this was the time to follow my dream. I went back to college, with the support of my husband and children, and then began my teaching career.

    Outside of teaching, I enjoy various activities. My family and myself are very sports oriented so we are always involved in some sporting event or outing. I have a passion for reading that lets me escape for hours on end (at least when the family will let me!) and I love to cook and bake.  I also like spending time with good friends either going to the movies or just catching up.

    In the classroom I strive to model success, perseverance, kindness, and respect. I hope to develop a love for reading in my students. I look forward to watching my students grow into responsible, life-long learners.
