Kim Soenen received her undergraduate degree in Management Information Systems from the University of Notre Dame, as well as a second major in French. She received her Masters of Arts in Teaching from the University of Iowa. Mrs. Soenen earned a Graduate Certificate in Middle School Mathematics 5-8 from Walden University.

Mrs. Soenen believes that teachers must establish strong relationships with students in order to teach effectively, and they must meet students where they are in order to help them reach their potential. Mrs. Soenen knows that it is her responsibility to teach the whole child. Besides teaching math to her students, she supports students in their journey towards becoming responsible, independent, and faithful young men and women. One of Mrs. Soenen’s priorities is to ensure that all students are respected and accepted in her classroom.

Every child is capable of learning mathematics at a high level, but they must first believe in themselves! Mrs. Soenen’s mathematicians are encouraged to take risks, make mistakes, and persevere every day in her classroom.

Mrs. Soenen feels blessed to be part of the Saint Ambrose community as she loves to combine her passion for teaching with her love of the Church. In her free time, Mrs. Soenen loves to run and to watch her children play sports. An avid reader, she particularly enjoys reading about the Catholic faith. She also is interested in healthy eating and living and likes to discuss the importance of a healthy and balanced lifestyle with her students. Sharing her love of service with her boys is one of her favorite activities. 

“Every day at school is an adventure! My students have taught me that I need to be flexible and willing to change my plans to meet their needs. Students have also taught me that the most important part of my job is getting to know each one of them as a person. Only then can I truly meet their needs. Students are enthusiastic, full of energy and often hilarious. Every day with them is a blessing.” – Kim Soenen
