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!
