My name is Mary Chantland. I have a bachelor of science in elementary education from Metropolitan State University in St. Paul, Minnesota.I have lived in Minnesota my whole life (until this summer) and taught 1st and 2nd grade in Minneapolis and St. Paul for the last 7 years. This summer we packed up our house in Minneapolis and moved to Marshalltown for a complete lifestyle change.I love outdoors activities, learning new things, and watching documentaries. This will be my first year teaching at East Marshall and I am so excited to be part of the East Marshall community and getting to know the students and families.
My name is Samantha Kline and I am one of the Kindergarten teachers here at East Marshall. I am a 2006 graduate of the University of Northern Iowa. After graduating from college I was a substitute teacher for four years. This will be my 12th year teaching at East Marshall Elementary. At East Marshall I have taught first grade for one year, second grade for one year and this will be my tenth year teaching kindergarten. My Husband Jason and I live in State Center. We spend all of our extra time being parents to our daughters, Cailynn, who turned eight last April and Catie, who turned six last April. Cailynn will be in 3rd grade this year and Catie will be in 1st grade.
