Working as an educator for 16 years can seem like a long time to be working in this field, but not for Mrs. Marshall. She wakes up every day excited about what she’s going to teach that day. Seeing the look on a student’s face when they have a major academic breakthrough and just interacting with the students is really what makes her happy.

Mrs. Marshall’s influence in becoming a teacher sparked growing up watching her parents teach; from those days on, she said she knew this is what she wanted to do. However, this wasn’t her only influence.

“I always wanted to teach, but I was inspired to teach in Special Education due to my youngest son being mildly autistic,” Marshall said. “I understood the need for competent and patient teachers in this area.”

She feels that what makes a good educator in general is competence, structure, but, most importantly, it is to care for the students that you teach saying.

“I am not going to say that anyone is doing anything wrong, but in this field the more compassion you show, coupled with knowledge has a positive effect on the student’s desire to learn what you are teaching,” Marshall said.

Students need consistency and the key to a well-run class is to develop a chemistry with each class is a very strong opinion Mrs. Marshall has about methods that help students. She went on to say that each class is different and requires a different dynamic.

“Everyone learns differently so when you are presented several ways to learn it helps you learn your strengths and allows you to overcome your weaknesses,” Marshall said.

After all these years of student, she has one main piece of advice for students.

“The advice I give is to students currently or almost finishing school is to do something that allows you to live well, but you also enjoy,” Marshall said. “The worse thing in life is to get up every morning and hate what you do. It makes for a miserable life and we all deserve to be happy.”
