Ms. Lisabeth Marks-Berner

Hello! My name is Ms. Marks-Berner and I will be leading your journey through 8th grade English Language Arts this year! I moved to Colorado from the beautiful state of North Carolina in 2017. I spent a year teaching in Fort Collins. I am the proud mother of two sons, Austin and Henry, both of whom graduated from Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. My husband, Christian, and I enjoy spending time with our family including our four legged children Tina the cat and Lu the dog, exploring the beautiful state of Colorado and travel. We recently spent a month in Portugal, France and Spain and just loved it. I look forward to spending this year exploring and learning with the scholars at Rodger Quist Middle School.

My educational philosophy is:  If you offer rigorous and interesting lessons, students will work harder and learn more. And above all, keep your sense of humor and wonder on display at all times.

One of my favorite quotes about learning is: “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”-Benjamin Franklin
