                Meet Mrs. Marr  


    I am a graduate of Penn State and Villanova Universities. I started my career in the Philadelphia School District as a second grade teacher. I taught in the Philadelphia School District for seven years as a second and third grade teacher before arriving at South Elementary as a third grade teacher.  I taught at South Elementary for nineteen years as a third and fifth grade teacher, spending eighteen years in fifth grade.  This year is my twenty-eighth year of teaching, and I am excited to spend another year at Schwenksville Elementary. I am married and have a young daughter who starts first grade this year. I enjoy reading, traveling, exercising, and spending time with my family.
