My name is Marisa Hartley and I am an English Language Arts teach at Jefferson County High School. I am excited to be back starting my 22nd year as an educator and 21st year as a teacher in Jefferson County. Prior to working at Jefferson County High School (JCHS), I worked most of my years at Wrens Middle School. I enjoy teaching ELA and helping students to make a connection between the text they read and their understanding of it.
I am originally from Augusta, Ga, but have lived in Davisboro, Ga with my husband, son and daughter for 21 years. I enjoy spending time with my family and our two dogs. I also enjoy being creative and showing my creativity through my painting. I attend Davisboro Baptist Church and sing in the choir.
My purpose for being an educator is to help all children learn. I am an advocate for my students as well as an encourager. I believe that with a little confidence and support all children can learn.
