Described as someone who has gone above and beyond his assigned duties, a Richmond elementary school teacher was named KRON4 News’ Teacher of the Week for March 7, 2017.
Kenneth Farr, who teaches 5th grade at St. David School at 871 Sonoma St., has shown “extraordinary heart and passion” in his third year teaching. Aside from his unique gift to make each student feel special, he gives freely of his time and effort and demands that each student report to school each day ‘ready to learn,'” according to colleagues who nominated him for the Teacher of the Week honor.
Along with being in constant communication with parents, Farr has stepped up during a time of staffing transition at St. David School. He has not only taken additional administrative duties in helping a new principal transition into the school, he joined the 8th grade basketball team as coach in order to ensure the team did not forfeit its season.
