Ms. Marks

An old Chinese Proverb says,

                                     I hear and I forget.
                                   I see and I remember.
                                   I do and I understand.

I have been helping students "to do" and to learn for seventeen years now.  This is my first year at Zion Central Middle School, and I am very excited to be here.  I received my undergrad from Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois with an emphasis on science and on education.  I then earned my graduate degree from National-Louis University in Evanston, Illinois with an emphasis on mathematics.

I live in Lake Zurich with my husband and three children who are ages 12, 10 and 8, and have two adult step-sons living in California. 

I am looking forward to a great year!
