Bonjour et Bienvenue!
Welcome to the
World Languages Department
Mme. Markle's Current course offerings include:
*(optional Dual Enrollment with St. Vincent University)
I began my teaching career in 1994 in North Carolina. Since that time, I have taught all ages from preschool to university level in the areas of French, English, Elementary (4th and 5th grade and language immersion) and Autism Support. I have also worked as a corporate trainer and training consultant, primarily in the areas of state and local government agencies and non-profit human services agencies/programs. It is safe to say that for over 27 years it has been a great privilege not only to teach, but to continue my own learning path, earning several teaching certifications, a master's degree and soon, a supervisory certification in Curriculum and Instruction. I have been a proud faculty member here at Derry Area since 2017.

The limits of my language are the limits of my world. ‒ Ludwig Wittgenstein
If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart. ‒ Nelson Mandela
