Mr. Marcus M. White

Hello! This is my fourth-year teaching social sciences and first year at Trailside Middle School. Prior to teaching, I served in the U.S. Marine Corps, as well as performed careers in finance and the U.S. House of Representatives.  

I consider Washington D.C. to be my home, but I have lived in over 20 countries. I earned my B.S. in Political Science from the University of Maryland, my M.Ed. in Curriculum, Instruction & Assessment from Walden University, and am currently finishing my PhD dissertation.

When not reading, writing, or traveling, I enjoy sailing and live on a sailboat with my bullmastiff, Mingus, during the warmer months. I am also a competitive fighter and teacher of Brazilian Jiu JItsu and a yoga instructor.  

I'm excited to teach in Loudoun County Public Schools as all my children graduated from the county's schools and I have volunteered as a sports coach, finance counselor and fireman in the county for years. I look forward to learning about each of my students and community academic partners and how I can best serve them.
