Mrs. Marsha Toplyn
Welcome to a new school year! I will be your child's ESOL teacher this year. This will be my second year teaching at Garrisonville Elementary School. I am so excited to get the year started. Together we will be working on reading, writing, listening and speaking skills in English. The grade level teachers and I plan to meet together so we can ensure our students are supported. I am really looking forward to meeting you! First, here's a little bit about me.
I am originally from Long Island, New York, but moved to Virginia 4 years ago. My husband and I live in Stafford with our dog, whom we love so much! I was a classroom teacher for 8 years, and then I became an English as a Second Language Teacher. I love doing yoga, going for walks with our dog, and making all kinds of crafts.
If you have any questions about the ESOL program or your child's language growth, please feel free to contact me.
