Kim Breivogel has taught Psychology at Wake Technical Community College in Raleigh for over 20 years, in online, seated and hybrid formats. While each course she teaches has different objectives, Kim’s ultimate goal is for her students to be able to apply class concepts to daily life and to actually USE their knowledge to become a happier, healthier, more effective and satisfied human beings. This is not an unreachable goal-- Psychology is the rare subject that's instantly applicable to each one of us every single day of our lives. Not many fields of study can make that claim! Kim initially got hooked on Psychology during her first psych course at Appalachian State University and went on to earn a BA in Psychology, and later a MA in School Psychology. After practicing as a School Psychologist for 5 years she went back to school, earning a Counseling/Adult Development/Higher Education degree from UNC- Greensboro. Current interests include lifespan development and human sexuality. Kim co-advises the Full Spectrum Gender & Sexualities Alliance at Wake Tech and also teaches lifespan sexuality education workshops (Kindergarten through adult) through the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Raleigh. Kim and her partner of 26 years live in Southern Wake county. They have two wonderful adult children, a sweet dog, a big vegetable garden and a noisy flock of backyard chickens.
