About Me

My name is Mrs. Marsha Shope. I received my Bachelor of Science degree from a small accredited Christian Liberal Arts College in northern Indiana, Grace College. This is where I met my husband,Rick. I am certified ,K-6 and have my ESOL endorsement. We have been happily married for 43 years, and have two married sons, who have provided us with 3 grandsons: Elijah, Ezra, and Luke. In my 26 years of teaching in Ohio, Missouri, Illinois and Florida, I have always enjoyed telling my "purposeful" life stories to help students connect with whatever they are learning. My philosophy in teaching is," Every child has a face in this world and a place in this world". We all have significance.

I have traveled, with my husband and sometimes our sons, to the following countries: Canada, Mexico, France, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland and the Island of Bermuda. My hobbies are flower gardening/landscaping, cooking/baking, and thrift-store shopping.
