Ms. Marie’s ties to Lake Nixon and to Second Baptist Church are true and deep. In addition to her role as a full-time teacher at Lake Nixon Outdoor Preschool, Marie has served as Assistant Director for the Lake Nixon Summer Day Camp for the last 22 years.
Ms. Marie was born in Louisiana and has lived in Arkansas since 1986. She has been married to her husband, Charles, for 39 wonderful years and has three children and six grandchildren. She began her teaching career 24 years ago when her children first entered preschool, and it wasn’t long before she realized she had found her calling in teaching. Marie went on to earn an Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education and continues to be as enthusiastic about education today as she was when she began.
In addition to her love of reading, Ms. Marie enjoys walking and has finished the Little Rock Half Marathon. The Lake Nixon Outdoor Center is proud to have such a dedicated and hard working individual as part of our team!
Ms. Marie’s favorite Bible verse: “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.” -Phil. 4:13
