Marla Morris: Mother. Teacher. Writer. Adjunct Professor at The Ohio State University.
Marla is a freshly retired public school teacher who is excited to have time for all things creative. She spent 32 years educating young minds, teaching courses in Spanish, English, Reading, Journalism, and Theory of Knowledge. She is set to take on the challenge of training the next generation of teachers at OSU. She comes from a family of educators--parents, in-laws, husband, son and daughter-in-law are all in the biz.
A lifetime ago, Marla was a young teacher trying to figure out how to reach kids through her craft. While spending over three decades fine-tuning the art of teaching, Marla served on just about every committee or task force that her school district needed and wore just as many hats. Always an advocate for students and second language acquisition, Marla likes to speak up when she sees an issue or a way to help.
Marla lives in Ohio with her husband, Dan, dog, Pippa, and Kosmo the cat. Her two grown children are contributing adults--one is a teacher in Columbus and the other is an actor in New York City. Marla enjoys reading, writing, spending time with loved ones, cooking, and creating things with her hands.
