Meet New School Wide Reading Teacher - Kim Farrar

posted Sep 14, 2015, 5:05 AM by shannon.thompson@trsu.org

My name is Kimberly Farrar, but over the years I have happily become "Mrs. Kim" to my students and their families! I am a Chester, VT native who learned to read right here at Chester Andover Elementary and now I am so excited to return to my roots and have the opportunity to help children on their journey to become wonderful readers! I attended Trinity College in Burlington, VT, married Alan Farrar who grew up on Crow Hill Farm, and then finished my Bachelor of Science degree at the College of St. Joseph with a dual degree in both elementary education and special education. I have taught in Bellows Falls Middle School, Springfield High School (ODP), Elm HIll Primary School and many will remember the decade during which Buckle My Shoe Preschool provided an early childhood education to so many of the sweet children of Chester and nearby towns! It was during those years Alan and I raised our four children, Nathan, Kaleigh, Abbey and Tessa who also have wonderful memories of school at CAES! I also have three incredible granddaughters, Lacey, Madeline and Skylar who I read to at every opportunity!

I am an animal rescue advocate and have rescued many dogs and cats by adding them to our family. I love traveling with Alan and exploring the USA! It's always nice to come home though, where my goats, chickens, dogs and cats are waiting for me on my little farm and now, especially coming home to teach right here in my home town!

Meet New School Wide Math Teacher - Laurie Birmingham

posted Sep 14, 2015, 5:04 AM by shannon.thompson@trsu.org

Hello!  My name is Laurie Birmingham and I’m excited to be teaching at Chester Andover Elementary School this year.  I started my teaching career right here in Chester in 1998 as 5/6 teacher.  As much as I loved teaching here it was only a one year position. The next year I began teaching in Grafton, Vermont where I taught grades 5/6 for 5 years.  During my time in Grafton I earned a Master’s degree from the University of Vermont’s Mathematics Initiative, (VMI) a three-year program whose goal is to improve the mathematical knowledge of teachers K-6.  In 2004 I decided to put teaching on hold to raise a family.  I was fortunate enough to stay home while my children were young, but during those years I maintained my teaching license by taking numerous classes, volunteering at CAES and tutoring.  Last year I worked part time at Elm Hill, a K-2 school, in Springfield, Vermont as a math interventionist.   Not only am I passionate about teaching I am passionate about the community of Chester in which I live.

At CAES I will be working as a math interventionist. My job is provide Tier 2 instruction in the area of mathematics. This means I provide targeted intervention to students in addition to their regular math instruction. I pull small groups of students and work with them in my classroom out in the “White House”. I may also push into their classroom to help out as well. In addition to intervention groups I will be teaching Everyday Mathematics to a group of 3rd graders.
