My name is Kim S. Nix and I am the Lead Attendance Improvement Specialist for the Regional Office of Education #9. I currently oversee two counties; Champaign and Ford, working with 14 school districts total. I hold a Bachelors and Masters in Psychology and I am also licensed in Child Welfare and Foster care. I have an extensive history working in the Champaign Unit 4 School District in numerous fields, including Special Education. I have always had a passion in helping children reach their full potential throughout their educational journey. I work hard to find resources, create programs, offer support, mentor or assist in any way possible to meet student/family needs. I am here to make a difference. Progress is-a-Process!
