HIDDEN HERO: Kim Goodloe

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Music plays in the background of Kim Goodloe's class as he helps a young student learn to count.

Goodloe teaches students Pre K through 12 at Eminence Independent School in Henry County.

When the bell rings at the end of the day, Goodloe doesn't go home.  He takes on another role.

"He takes students to the doctor or makes sure they make an eye appointment.  He also makes sure they've got their homework and are ready for a test," said Principal Mike Doran.

Principal Doran said Goodloe even finds time to help out at the Warrior Center or the W.A.C across the street from the school. It gives students a place to go after school.

"Once they finish studying, they can play basketball and sometimes play table tennis. The students work so hard all day and this gives them a stress reliever," said Goodloe.

Parents, co-workers and even complete strangers have taken notice of Goodloe's love for his students.  But his friends said a thank you is just not enough and that's why they nominated him as their hero.

"My motto has been to help someone along life's way that in itself would make my day and that's what I've always wanted to do," said Goodloe.

He grew up in Eminence and attended school at Eminence Independent Schools.  He's been a teacher for 8 years.
