Ms. Marilyn MacMillan
Early Learning Classroom Teacher (Pre-K and Kindergarten) and Fifth Grade Religion
Greetings dear friends,
As I begin my 15th year of service at Saint Joseph Catholic Parish School, I would like to thank all of you for joining me in this new year of learning. Savannah, Georgia is my hometown, and I am number six of seven children in the MacMillan family lineup. I am a Saint Vincent Academy graduate, class of 1978, and I have a great affinity for the coastal region and the marsh habitats where I played as a child.
I have called Athens, Georgia my home for the past 40 years, and in that time, I have had the opportunity to earn two degrees from the University of Georgia. I studied Art as my bachelor’s degree, and years later, I returned to college to pursue a Masters degree in Early Childhood Education.
My one and only daughter happens to be an alumna of St. Joe’s, and she and her husband live in the San Francisco Bay area which has become my favorite travel destination. This summer I acquired a new puppy that keeps me on my toes. Unfortunately, my old dog and old cat are quite dismayed by the new addition to the household. Currently, we are working on establishing peace and harmony through constant reminders.
In my spare time I enjoy drawing, painting, sculpting, reading, and writing. As a teacher, I try to incorporate these elements into my classroom lessons, activities, and projects.
I look forward each day to using my time, talent, and treasure to help your children achieve great strides in their educational pursuits here at St. Joe’s. Please join me in this task, as we can work together to raise future leaders dedicated to service in our Church, our community, and in our world.
