Gail Marcks, second grade teacher
I graduated from Northern Illinois University with a Bachelor of Science in Education degree. I am certified to teach in Illinois (K-9) and in Louisiana (K, 1-5, and Mild/Moderate 4-8). Throughout my 13 year teaching career, I have taught children in Preschool through sixth grade. I have taught Regular Education, Special Education, and Gifted/Talented Education students. I believe that each child is a uniquely created individual who needs to be encouraged to explore learning while feeling treasured, respected, nurtured, praised, and motivated to do their personal best daily. I set high expectations in my classroom as I strive to empower my students to believe in their own value, fulfill their roles as kind and respectful members of a community, and stimulate their curiosity and thirst for knowledge, while providing the tools they can use to answer their questions. I am looking forward to helping your child succeed and have fun together as a class “family”!
