My name is Marielle Sawyer and I am a first grade teacher. The 2016-2017 school year will be my eleventh year as a classroom teacher. This is my ninth year teaching first grade at Fox Hill. Previously I taught second grade at Fox Hill and before that I taught third grade in Chelsea. Prior to teaching I earned a Master’s degree in Education at UMass Amherst.
Teaching is my passion but when I’m not in the classroom I look forward to spending time with family and friends. I have a two year old son and recently had a baby girl in January. Without a doubt, being a mom is the best experience of my life. When the weather is nice I like to go out for a run or I enjoy going on walks around my neighborhood with my husband and our children. I’m also a figure skating coach and love to skate myself whenever I have the chance.
Oh and I forgot to mention that I like to dance too (especially with my Fox Hill colleagues)! 🙂
