Ms. Buchanan - Kindergarten

Hello, my name is Marliese Buchanan. I am so very excited to be here at Akers, and part of our Kindergarten team, for the 2017-2018 academic year. I have been a first grade or second grade teacher, off and on (amidst moves and children) for 13 years. I have a B.A. in English, a Masters in Education, and teaching licenses for Virginia, California, and Department of Defense Dependents Schools. I have taught in Virginia, Japan, and here for Central Union School District. I have a daughter in fourth grade and a son in TK. This is my first year at Akers, and teaching Kindergarten, so a lot of firsts for all of us to enjoy together!

What an amazing joy it will be to watch the children learn and develop their social, academic, small and fine motor skills daily, with sounding out, decoding, reading, rhyming, counting, adding, subtracting, writing, graphing, sharing, technology exploration, singing, moving and engaging with others, every day. We will support each other on this journey. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, and/or successes. Here’s to a fantastic school year!
