My name is Emeka Marshall, and I teach 8th grade Language Arts, Creative Writing, Greenpower, AVID, and Reading Lab. I am also the Girls Who Code sponsor. This is my third year at Liberty and in Madison City; however, I have been an educator for nearly 20 years. I taught high school in Talladega County at B.B. Comer Memorial High. While there, I coached cheer, track, and softball and sponsored drama, Seniors, Juniors and Student Council. In 2014, I moved to Huntsville and taught with Huntsville City Schools at Huntsville Junior High. While there, I also coached cheer and served as an Equity trainer for Huntsville City Schools. In 2017, I worked as the Staff Training Coordinator for the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library before returning to Huntsville City Schools as the Dynamic Learning Project Technology and Learning Coach at Huntsville Junior High School. What an amazing experience working with educators from across the nation! However, there is nothing like being in the classroom with my kids and Liberty is just the place for me!
I love teaching, learning from my students and colleagues, and sharing my knowledge and resources. My desire is to create a safe, warm, and inspiring learning environment for my students. We will focus on being compassionate, successful, contributing digital citizens.
Two quotes that reflect my philosophy as an educator:
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. -Nelson Mandela
Education is a human right with immense power to transform. On its foundation rest the cornerstones of freedom, democracy, and sustainable human development.
