Meet Mrs. Marks
My background in education started when I received my Bachelor degree from CCSU in Fine Arts, concentrating in art. I went on to receive my Master's degree in Special Education from SCSU. Just recently, I completed my Sixth Year equivalent from Augustana College.
I have lived in Stratford my entire life and have gone through the school system myself. I attended your very own Chapel St. School. Flood Middle School, and graduated from BHS. I am married to a wonderful husband and have two super boys of my own. Spencer is 14 and attends SHS and Trevor is 9 and goes to Wilcoxson School.
This is my ninth year in the Stratford school system. While I have been here, I have taught third and fourth grade as well as art. My last eight years were spent at Wilcoxson School. Before joining the Stratford school system, I taught in Bridgeport for eight years. Again as a third grade teacher and art teacher. Yes, I have been back and forth between being a classroom teacher and art teacher. This is strictly due to budget cuts in the art department. However, I feel that this experience gives me the opportunity to bring the two together to enhance my teaching.
I am very excited to be teaching art again, especially in the same school that I went to. However, my room didn't even exist when I was here! I hope to have a wonderfully creative time with all of the children. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me ([email protected]).
