After 24 years of teaching, 18 of which spent here at Calallen, adored instructor Marsha Mackerer will be retiring at the end of this year.

According to Mackerer, she has always been a teacher, except for the 6 years she held part-time jobs after her son was born. Mackerer has definitely left her mark on this school.

“I hope to be remembered as kind and treating others the way I want to be treated,” Mackerer said. “My mom taught me ‘the best role model walks the walk.’”

Reflecting on the many great experiences she’s had over the years, Mackerer has quite the list.

“[My favorite memory] is going on many road trips with FCCLA members and getting to know them in a different setting and two members winning 1st place at National Competition in Entrepreneurship at Philadelphia.”

Mackerer teaches six classes: Lifetime Nutrition, Food Service, Child Development, Instructional Practices, Principles of Education, and Principles of Human services. Many of her students are sad that she will no longer be there.

“They wanted me to stay another year to teach the classes they signed up for,” Mackerer said.

During her retirement, Mackerer plans to spend time with her aging parents and eight grandchildren, traveling, and volunteering to help others. Mackerer gives one last piece of advice to those hired in her place next year.

“Be patient, be flexible, love kids!” Mackerer said.
