About Me

Marie Carrington is a teacher and mother who lives in the San Lorenzo

Valley. She received her credential from CSUMB and taught fifth grade for

several years. She took time off when her children were little and was an

active volunteer in the parent-run art program at their school. She then

went back to work part-time, as a second grade and math intervention

teacher. She is now very happy to be a teacher in the Quail Hollow

Integrated Arts Program. Her core values as a teacher include project-based

learning, choice, creativity in demonstrating student understanding,

curiosity, and pursuing engagement and literacy through inquiry.

Her special training includes: Mindful Educator Certification, ongoing

participant in the Silicon Valley Math Initiative, Responsive Classroom

Course for Educators, Santa Cruz Summer Arts Institute, and leadership

institutes surrounding curiosity across the curriculum and reading and

writing strategies and structures.


In her free time, she loves to read, hike with her family, go to the river or

beach, swim and travel. Anytime she can relax or play with her family is

time well spent.
