Mrs. Elizabeth Amy Marple
Welcome to Legacy! My name is Amy Marple. I am excited to be your child's teacher this year for 4th grade. This will be my 21st year teaching elementary school. I have my Masters in Special Education from the University of New Mexico and my undergraduate degree in psychology from Northern Vermont College. I grew up in Vermont, but then lived out west in New Mexico for 8 years. I have also lived and taught in Costa Rica, Montgomery County, MD., and Fairfax County, VA. Then, I was thrilled to get my dream job teaching at Legacy for the past 5 years. I have a sweet husband of 13 years, and we have 2 adorable children and 1 crazy dog, named Luna.
My passion for teaching comes from a deep love of children and education. I believe that all children deserve a safe and loving environment to learn that is engaging, fun, and challenging. I also believe that the children enrich my life. They teach me as much as I teach them, every day, and every year. I am grateful to have the opportunity to live a life full of wonder, love, excitement, and opportunity when I walk in to the classroom each day. Teaching challenges me and changes from day to day and year to year, which is one of the things that I love most about this profession. I look forward to getting to know you and working together with you and your children through the school year!
Welcome to 4th grade!
