Episcopal grade school our son, Parker, was fortunate to attend for 9 years (PK3 - 6th grade). I'm a lifelong Episcopalian and have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications from Wake Forest University. I spent 10 years as a capital equipment sales representative in the wholesale baking industry and 18 years as a buyer & marketing representative in commercial aviation. I've served on the Alumnae Board of my high school, Salem Academy and am a Sustaining Member of the Junior League of Jacksonville.
My husband Bill and I have been happily married for 28 years & our son Parker is a recent graduate of the University of Alabama. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, entertaining and needlepoint.

Mary Beth Marzec
My name is Mary Beth Marzec, and I will be co-teaching Kindergarten this year at Grace. This is my twentieth year at the school, and I have loved every minute of it. I started out as the P.E. teacher while my children were young, and then I went back into the classroom where I taught second grade for many years. I took a year off to regroup and tend to my family. Then I returned to Grace to substitute teach in the classroom and work in Extended Day, which allowed me to stay connected with the children, whom I truly love. These past two years at Grace, I served as the school's librarian and taught library classes.
I have a B.S. degree in Special Education and Elementary Education. I have taught Preschool through Eighth grade students throughout my teaching career.
I attended the University of Georgia and received a degree in early childhood education. I have teaching experience in grades first through fifth. Although I am originally from Georgia, I have taught in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Virginia. I joined the faculty of Grace Episcopal Day School in the spring of 2014.
I have a daughter named Mimi. I enjoy cooking and reading to Mimi. We share a love for animals and have four dogs and two cats. I also enjoy tennis, riding horses, and walking.
