Dr. Larmie's Bio

I am Justin Larmie and serve as one of the assistant principals of Martin City K8 School.   I am originally from Southeast Missouri, but have been in the KC metro since 2003.  I am married to Crystal, who began her career in education and is now "stay-at-home and home-school mom" to our four amazing children.  Caedyn is our oldest, at seventeen.  He is a junior this year.  Noelle is thirteen and is a 7th grader.  Lillian is eleven and started the 5th grade this year.  Jack is seven and is in 1st grade. 
My educational journey has links to Martin City, as I completed my student teaching here.  I began working as an 8th-grade ELA teacher in a nearby, more rural district.  Then, I returned to Martin City, where I taught 7th- and 8th-grade ELA for ten years.  At that time, I became a District Instructional Coach and served in two elementary schools - Butcher-Greene and Belvidere.  I was very excited to return to Martin City to serve, once again, in 6-8.  Last year, we set the framework on which we will continue to build.  Be prepared to hear the amazing things that are happening at Martin City K8!  
I am committed to learning and maintaining personal growth. I completed my undergraduate work at UMKC, earning my BA in Middle School Education.  Later, I earned my Master's Degree in Teacher Leadership and Educational Specialist Degree in Educational Administration.  In 2018, I completed my doctoral journey, earning an Educational Doctorate in PreK-12 Educational Administration.  I continue to put into practice the theories of education I have learned and I continue to grow and develop skills as I support the teachers, students, and families of Martin City. 
In my spare time, I enjoy playing the piano, reading, and spending time with my family - usually exploring creeks or trails. We enjoy down time canoeing, floating on the lazy river, and enjoying the natural beauty at Big Cedar, a favorite of ours.  We have recently discovered a couple new, favorite vacation spots in Northern Michigan, around Mackinaw City and in Estes Park, Colorado.  I also am very involved in our church's music program and am extremely thankful for my church family and its leadership.  Finally, as a KC metro resident, I proudly cheer on the KC Royals and Chiefs!
