My name is Marlee Walkup! I am so excited to be a part of Silver Lake Elementary and the first grade team! This will be my third year teaching and my third year teaching first grade. I am looking forward to meeting all of the kiddos and having the best year yet!
To me, the best part about being a teacher is getting to watch the kiddos grow throughout the year and getting to hear what they learned about or enjoyed getting to do. I love finding new/creative ways to teach a lesson and learning from other educators to help me grow as an educator!
I grew up in Melbourne Beach, Florida. During this time, I attended schools in the area and played a lot of soccer. After graduating high school, I attended EFSC and graduated with an Associate of Arts degree and went on to USF (University of South Florida) in Tampa, FL, where I graduated with a B.S. in Early Childhood Education. I taught for two years at schools in Hillsborough County prior to moving to Grapevine, TX.
I just moved to Grapevine this August and am already in love with the community here! I have a cat named Meeko who will be two in October! She is so much fun and is very friendly! I enjoy getting to spend time with my family and friends, especially when we can go to Disney World. I love anything Disney!! I enjoy watching football, especially watching the Florida Gators (Chomp Chomp) or the Dallas Cowboys! I also enjoy watching the Tampa Bay Rays play baseball! I love monograms, florals, tjmaxx, flair pens, and target!
I am looking forward to a fabulous school year and getting to have your child in my class!!
