Hello, my name is Linda Kimbrough and I am the Registered Nurse at Forest Trail Elementary. My trail as a school nurse started 20 years ago and one would think I have "seen and heard it all" by this time in my life. But....ten years ago I started a journal which contains unusual comments or incidents that I have not experienced in "all my years in pediatrics". I plan to publish the journal or black mail parents when I retire.
I love working with your children as we address physical and emotional ailments and enjoy time out for health and safety education. I will do my best to keep them safe, healthy, and feeling loved. I welcome adult conversation so feel free to call me if you have concerns about your child.
In my spare time, my husband, 2 adult children and their spouses, 2 grandchildren, and 4 grand-dogs keep me busy with babysitting/dog sitting jobs, yard work, and house projects. My husband and I try to get away from it all with trips to South Padre Island every chance we get.
Welcome to the world of Nurse Kimbrough
