After two years of teaching Spanish, Kim Dubansky is returning to one of her academic passions: science and is excited to her passion for the natural world with Gilman Middle School students. Additionally, she teaches the seventh grade leadership course and coaches soccer, basketball, and lacrosse.

A McDonogh graduate, Ms. Dubansky studied at Johns Hopkins University where she majored in Public Health and minored in Environmental Earth Sciences, while also playing on the lacrosse team. She received her masters degree from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and went on to an international environmental consulting firm where she worked to remediate oil and petroleum in ground water and soil in the mid-Atlantic area. She joined the Gilman faculty in 2012.

When not at Gilman, Ms. Dubansky enjoys running, biking, being outdoors, and playing in local soccer and lacrosse leagues.  She also enjoys hiking, traveling to remote, tropical places, and spending time with friends and family.
