A seating chart of the class roster.

The Fourth Grade at Springfield Elementary School is Bart Simpson's class. It was taught by Mrs. Krabappel until her retirement in 2013 due to the death of her voice actress Marcia Wallace. It was temporarily taken over by Jack Lassen, who was fired for his bad actions. It was later taught by Caroline Berrera, who left to serve in Afghanistan. As of "Left Behind", Ned Flanders currently teaches the class. Most of the kids are 10 years old. There is a total of 20 recurring students.

Substitute Teachers


  • In one episode there are only 16 seats in Ms. Krabappel's classroom. Two seats in the front row are taken by Ishmael and Ezekiel, while the other seat to Bart's right is reserved for the new student, Samantha Stankey[27].
  • At one point, Jimbo Jones and Kearney Zzyzwicz are shown sitting in Ms. Krabappel's class[28]. However, they are sixth-grade students who frequently cut class and ditch school. It is possible that they were present in the classroom to redeem something they failed in the fourth grade, or for some other similar reason.
  • Once, Janey Powell is shown sitting in Ms. Krabappel's class. However, she is a second grader in Elizabeth Hoover's class[29].
  • One of Bart's classmates greatly resembles Levi Bernstein, one of Bart's distant cousins from the Bernstein family side of the Simpson family tree[30].
  • Following Marcia Wallace's death (the actress who voiced Edna) and Krabappel's retirement, the classroom wasn’t seen in later episodes until Ned Flanders took over as the current teacher.
