Ms. Marsha H. Fehr



     Hello! My name is Marsha Fehr, and this is my 19th year teaching at the Elementary (P-5) level.  I began my teaching career in Atlanta City Schools, where I taught both 1st and 2nd grade.  Wanting to be closer to family, I decided to move to Jefferson County, Georgia.  I taught at Louisville Elementary School for twelve years in Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th grades.  My son and I decided it was time for a change, and decided to move to Ben Hill County four years ago, where I began teaching 5th grade at Ben Hill Elementary. After three years of teaching fifth grade, I moved to fourth grade.  However, I have moved to the Special Education Department, and currently teach a self-contained classroom.  I am passionate about teaching, and enjoy watching children's minds grow into readers, thinkers, and problem solvers.  There is nothing more rewarding than watching a "light bulb" go off in a child's head, and witnessing a bright smile emerge onto their face as they have one of those "aha!" moments.  

     I attended Mercer University in Macon, GA where I received my bachelor's degree.  I continued my education in Atlanta, GA where I received my Masters in Early Childhood Education.  I have recently added both General Special Education and Special Education Adapted Curriculum certification to my teaching certificate.  I also have added an endorsement for Autism Spectrum Disorder.  

     In a nutshell, I love teaching and I love children.  I am passionate about what I do, and I truly feel that as people we have an opportunity to learn something new every day - we must just keep our eyes, ears and minds open to the world around us.  I aim to instill my passion for learning into the student's I teach.  I want them to experience and believe that learning can be fun!
