Kim Zielinski (Ms. Kim) started working at Cedar Cove Academy in 2017. She grew up in Encinitas with her identical twin, 2 more sisters, and a brother! After studying photography and family counseling, she facilitated Life Skills classes to adults to help them manage their feelings while healing childhood wounds. She enjoys riding her bike in her free time as well as hiking and backpacking. She backpacks a section of Pacific Crest Trail with two of her sisters every summer. She loves spending time with her two grown boys, Logan, 29, who lives in San Diego, and Nolan, 27, who lives in Massachusetts. Ms. Kim loves the closeness and community of working at Cedar Cove. Everyone really works as a team and it’s fun to see the kids everyday and watch them grow throughout the years.
