Before she came to the OU, Kim was a Lecturer and Teacher Tutor at Roehampton University across the Primary Education Programmes. She taught Special and Inclusive Education (SIE) on the BA (Hons) with QTS and the Masters programmes, as well as supporting trainee teachers on the PGCE programme. As a Primary educator she taught in Primary schools for 20 years in Inner London, where she led inclusion and was a SENCO, Deputy Head Teacher, and Head Teacher.

Kim’s research interests focus on special educational needs, inclusive education and leadership in Primary Schools. She started her EdD in 2015 and her research explores the role of Governing Boards in developing ‘vision’ and supporting children considered to have Special Educational Needs. She was invited to present the findings from the pilot study of her Doctorate at the BELMAS Conference in July 2017. Kim has supported Schools to develop their practice in areas relating to her research interests. She has undertaken a range of scholarship projects since 2014 to support equality, diversity and widening access initiatives within the OU
