Welcome to 4th grade! My name is Kimberly Marlar, and I am excited to be your child's language arts teacher this year!

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Grandview College in Iowa with a Bachelor's degree in Pre-Law. Next, I graduated from Arizona State University with a Master's degree in Educational Psychology. Two years later, I earned my Post-Baccalaureate in Teaching. I have three educational endorsements: English Language Learning, Library and Media Technology, and Middle School Social Sciences. I am certified to teach grades K-8. I have taught 6th grade, 2nd grade, and 4th grade at Andersen Elementary since 1994.

My Educational Philosophy

I am a dedicated teacher with 20+ years of experience. I will provide engaging lessons with a variety of materials that will cater to the students' different learning styles. I believe all students can learn, but not everyone learns the same way or at the same rate. In order to promote student success, and to develop a lifelong love of learning, it is important to have collaboration among the student, parents, teachers, and all school personnel. I look forward to partnering with your family to provide your fourth grade student with the best year possible.
