Marie Williams

First Grade

My name is Marie Williams. I am currently the First grade teacher here at OLA. I am starting my 41st year of teaching in Catholic Education in Columbia. I began my love for education at Holy Trinity School. I am a graduate of Columbia High School and the University of Delaware. I have had experience teaching Grades 1, 2, and 3 at both St. Peter’s School and OLA. First grade has been the most rewarding because I get to experience the joy that reading brings to the children as they learn more and more skills. I also love to share my faith and prayer with the children as it seems to make a lasting impression. When I am not teaching or doing school work. I love to spend time with my husband John, our children, Lauren, Renee, and John, and our rescue pet dog, Neena. Our daughters are both educators and I love getting new teaching ideas from them. Our son John does new home contracting work. Our three children attended OLA as well. I attribute much of their work ethic and motivation to the many wonderful experiences and educators here at OLA.
