Greetings! My name is Dr. Jennifer Marchessault, but please call me Dr. M~. I am happy to be starting my third year at Currituck County Middle School.
I am originally from Western Pennsylvania (Go Steelers, Go Pitt!), where I received my Bachelor's in Secondary Ed/English and my Master's in Reading from the University of Pittsburgh. Then I earned my Master's in Administration and Doctorate in Leadership from Youngstown State University. This year, I am entering my 21st year of teaching. I began as a Reading Specialist in Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas, moved to Virginia as an administrator and have spent the last 11 years teaching graduate courses in teacher education/reading for ODU, Cal State and Indiana Wesleyan University (to name a few). After retiring from Navy life, my husband, daughter and I are happily settled here in Currituck County and I am fortunate to be a part of the Raider family.
