Ms. Marsha Timberlake

My name is Marsha Timberlake.  I retired from Youngsville Elementary School with 31 years of teaching in 2008.  I continued teaching as a long term substitute in Franklin County.  Then I decided I wanted to continue teaching so I came out of retirement and taught at Jones Dairy Elementary for four years.  Now I am back at Youngsville in the EC Department.  As you can tell teaching is in my heart!

I graduated from Atlantic Christian College with a BS Degree in Education, East Carolina University with a MaEd Degree, and I am a National Board Certified Teacher.  I am also certified to teach EC.

I am married to David Timberlake and have one son.  We are from Youngsville and have lived here out entire life.
