Kimm Doherty

Head of the Lower School

Kimm Doherty is a founding member of the Grayson team, and brings a strong commitment and deep passion for gifted education to Grayson. She leads our Lower School faculty through mentoring, planning and adapting units, guiding professional development, and individualizing each student’s learning experience.

Mrs. Doherty holds a M.Ed. in Gifted Education from the University of Connecticut, home of the National Center for Research on Gifted Education. Certified in both Elementary and Middle School education, her experience spans both public and private school classrooms.

Her enthusiasm for creating rich, engaging content for young students has led her beyond the classroom too. She worked at the Franklin Institute Science Museum, where she used a National Science Foundation grant to design innovative hands-on science units for Philadelphia public schools. She started the local Radnor chapter of PAGE (Pennsylvania Association for Gifted Education) and later became the State Affiliate Director for PAGE, helping parents across the state to improve gifted education in their communities. Along the way, she was also elected to serve on the Radnor Township School Board for a 4-year term.

Mrs. Doherty brings her multifaceted educational background, her love of educating elementary students, and her expertise with professional development to help grow Grayson.
