All About Mrs. Markle

All About Me!
Markle Family
I am so excited to begin my 16th year teaching with you. I’m a hometown girl; born and raised in Jacksonville. I graduated from Mandarin High School in 1998. From there I attended the University of North Florida to pursue my degree in Elementary Education. In 2004, I began my career as a first grade teacher at Durbin Creek Elementary. I also taught Kindergarten for 5 years at Durbin. I am very excited to begin my 4th year at Valley Ridge Academy. I have a passion for teaching and learning and absolutely could not imagine myself doing anything else. In 2006, I married my high school sweetheart. We have two handsome boys who also attend VRA in 4th grade and 2nd grade. I’m looking forward to a great year with your wonderful children! Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to teach them this year and watch them grow.
