"Teachers have three loves: love of learning, love of learners, and the love of bringing the first two loves together."

Kimberly Coke is a Special Education teacher at Salome Urena school located in Newark New Jersey for the past three years. Kimberly Coke’s class won the New Jersey Department of Education bulletin board contest earlier this year. Education Commissioner, Dr. Lamont Repollet, visited Salome Urena School and recognized Ms. Coke and her class for having the winning bulletin board. Ms. Coke always works hard to design the class room as a warm and welcoming evironment for her students. By changing the bulliten boards often based on the themes they are studing this keeps her students excited and interested in the topic.
