Mrs. Marcis & Ms. Poe 

In this classroom our younger students transition into being more independent learners.


Room 2 is lucky enough to have 2 teachers who work together to bring a seamless program to our 2nd - 4th grades.


Mrs. Kim Marcis came to Yosemite in 1999 as an Instructor for NatureBridge, and  has worked as an educator for 21 years, and this will be her 8th year as a classroom teacher.  Additionally, Kim has worked as a Camp Director for a STEM summer program in the Bay Area.  

She received her teaching credential and Masters of Arts in Teaching from Fresno State while living and working in Mariposa and El Portal.  With three children of her own, she is dedicated to fostering a lifelong love of learning in all young people.  


Ms. Jennifer Poe comes to Yosemite from Tennessee after having earned her teaching credential from The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.  She has been coming out to Yosemite for the past five summers and has worked at both Camp Wawona and the Yosemite National Park Child Care Center.  This will be Ms Poe's 3rd year in the Classroom.
