Most recently she taught at Union Grove High School in Henry County where she had the pleasure of teaching all visual art students and courses.  Many of her former elementary students come to UGHS, so she has taught numerous students for ten years of their life and has gotten to know many of them quite well. Recently Kirby accepted the position as the Fine Arts Teacher on Special Assignment in Henry County where she will support and provide resources for all of the art teachers.
