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 ;) @ email@example.com
