Congratulations to Mrs. Jody Marlay, 3rd Grade Teacher at Greenwood Elementary School in Woodstock!
"Mrs. Marlay has a special program in her class it is called "Marlay Readers" with this program you see the children in her class trying to read more than play video games. Every day that my daughter comes home from school she has a new story or something "out of the box" so to speak that Mrs. Marlay has shared with them. Keeping learning fun and keeping my daughter's attention in a classroom is impressive to me. Mrs. Marlay offers the top readers of the semester to eat and have lunch with her. She is very caring and nurturing to her students and at the same time is very good at keeping the peace. At the age of 8-9 there is a lot of drama that comes with the children and Mrs. Marlay sure does know how to keep it out of the classroom. She makes my daughter come home laughing with many stories and she is definitely a wonderful teacher. We both have learned a lot from her this year and hope to hear of new books to read! Also Mrs. Marlay's outfits don't go unnoticed from my daughter either. She is very impressed that Mrs. Marlay can walk in all her different high heels. Tina Bree would be impressed!" -Christina R
