What an awesome back to school celebration at Blythe-Bower. We were so thankful for one of our Best Partners, South Cleveland Church of God, and their generous help and donation to our amazing students. South Cleveland Church of God provided food for our families, backpacks filled with school supplies for every student, and many blow-ups for families to enjoy a great time together. We are also thankful for All Nations Church of God for free haircuts during our registration time for all students. It was a great beginning to a great year.
I’m Kim Davison and I have been teaching in the ERC class at Blythe-Bower for 4 years. I grew up in Chattanooga and went to UTK to earn my degree in Special . I began my teaching career in a high school CDC class in Jefferson County. My husband Drew and I moved to Cleveland when he took a job at Wacker in Charleston. He has been to Germany twice for training and I was lucky enough to be able to join him in Burghausen, Germany for 3 weeks this summer. While we were there we went rock climbing on the highest point in Germany, Zugspitze. We were also able to take a few day vacation to Prague. The views there are unbelievably beautiful. The traveling was great but I also enjoyed staying in town and learning about the German Culture.

My husband and I celebrating the Germany winning the World Cup with a “few of our new friends.” This was at a public viewing in Burghausen. The atmosphere was electric during the game
My husband and I climbed out to the gold cross at the highest peak. The views were incredible however it was quite challenging climbing over when the path was covered in ice and snow. On the way back we passed a sign that my husband had translated, it turns out we were supposed to make that climb without climbing equipment. Oops!
Emily Adams is a new 5th grade student at Blythe-Bower this year. Her previous school was Mayfield Elementary. Emily’s favorite subject is math and one day she wants to be a teacher or a cosmetologist. In her spare time, she loves to sing and dance, hang out with her friends, eat Chinese food, and her favorite music is hip hop. Her goal this year is to stay focused on her school work because she feels like that her 5th grade year is the year that grades become more important and begins to determine her path of education.
