As a member of the League of Canadian Poets, the Writers' Union of Canada and PEN Canada, Kim often brings visiting poets and writers into her classroom, so that her students can see how literature is alive in the world. As the new poet laureate, one of her hopes is to meet with other teachers about how they can use poetry in their classrooms.
