marlinMy name is Marlin, and I’m a Utah native, a U of U alumnus twice-over, a doctoral student, and a proud father. I’m also lucky to have a close-knit family, with many children to play with, filling my life with laughter and energy. I’m so thrilled to be joining the team as a Red Room teacher! As I’ve learned from my previous child care teaching experience, as well as my daily experience with my own daughter: there’s little that brings me more satisfaction than combining my love of kids with my commitment to life-long learning through play and curiosity.
