    I'm Lara Kimsey. This is my 21st year teaching and 17th year at South Hi Mount. I am originally from Hico Texas. I graduated from Tarleton State University with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. My husband and I have two boys and a dog. When I am not at school, I love watching my boys play football and baseball. I am glad to be a part of the 3rd grade team.
