Welcome to East Marshall Middle School

We are home to over 300 amazing 4th-8th grade students and a talented, devoted staff. We believe that ALL students and staff can achieve at high levels. Our focus is on ensuring that all students' academic, social, and emotional needs are met on a daily basis.

I am excited to come back to the Mustang family! I have been in the education field for 25 years. I received my Bachelors degree in elementary education at Simpson College, my Masters degree in Early Childhood Special Education, and my Principal Certificate through the Iowa Principal Leadership Academy. I have taught and coached various age levels in New Hampton, East Marshall, and West Marshall.

Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my husband Terry and daughters, Madison, Mara, and Makaylie.

Please feel free to contact me via phone or email at any time!

Go Mustangs!

– Principal Tarbell
