Mrs. Kim Van Staagen

I am a graduate from University of North Alabama with a BA in Social Work. I obtained a BS in Physical Education from Athens State University. I received a Master's Degree in Health and Physical Education for grades K-12 from the University of North Alabama. I am currently working on an Educational Leadership Degree from University of West Alabama.  

I have 17 years of teaching experience in Adapted Physical Education from Decatur City Schools. I moved to Madison City Schools this year to teach Adapted P.E. I also work as an adjunct at Athens State University. During the past 12 years, I have coached Special Olympics volleyball, basketball, and track and field.

I enjoy creating an environment where students with disabilities have an opportunity to be active and have fun. I look forward to working with your child.
