Mrs. Wendy Marshburn

I am an 8-year veteran teacher with a Bachelor of Science in Business with a concentration in Textiles from Clemson University.  I really enjoy applying my real-world knowledge as a manager to the classroom.  I love the classroom because of the kids that fill it!  They are truly amazing!

 

I went to school to become a certified teacher because I realized that I was always one.  My favorite job was as a training manager because I was able to help others learn.  I had an epiphany that I enjoyed watching for that 'Ah-hah' moment in people I teach more than anything.  I enjoy teaching these 7th graders that they can accomplish more learning than they ever thought possible while having fun.

 

I have discovered through my years in the classroom that it really isn't about what I teach ( although I spend a great deal of time planning it out).  It's really about how I teach.  How I let them know that I care enough to expect greatness from each one, especially when that greatness takes the form of trying and falling flat-- then trying one more time.  I know I won't reach every single one of my students, but being someone who was greatly influenced by teachers, I know I make a difference.

 

I am married to Johnnie Marshburn for 24 years now and we live in beautiful Harrells with our 4 children.  In my free time, I can be seen watching them in their many sports, music, and drama events.  

 

I have had many, many jobs throughout my lifetime.  I choose to be in the classroom, teaching your child.  Please contact me with any questions, concerns, or words of praise :)  Goodness knows every teacher needs it!  We spend our days with teenagers ;)  @ wmarshburn@sampson.k12.nc.us
