When not in the classroom serving students, Mr. Kimball enjoys sports officiating working high school and a few college basketball and football games. He also enjoys time with family and friends hiking, enjoying the outdoors, and traveling.  Prior to teaching, Mr. Kimball spent 11 years pursuing his dream of becoming a Major League baseball umpire.  He spent 3 years in AAA just one step from the Majors.  Being on the field with Hall of Famers and working in big cities all over the country was a great experience.
