Mrs. Marla Demetria Warner

     Teaching is an absolute passion of mine! I am so excited to work with you and your child! It’s going to be a year full of fun, learning, and lots of adventures. I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us! I thought you might want to know a little about me.

     I am married to my wonderful husband, Avery. He is the Fairhope High School Defensive Coordinator and a History teacher. We have 3 gorgeous daughters {Malari} who is in 8th grade, {Aubrey} who is in 3rd grade, {Dallas} who who attends Mrs. B’s Daycare, and my son {Marien} who is in 10th grade at Opelika High. They take up most of my free time, but some hobbies that I enjoy are swimming, curling up to a good movie, and painting.

     I’ve been in Fairhope 2 years. I am originally from Salem, AL (near Auburn) and lived there most of my life. I am a graduate of Smiths Station High School and attended/graduated from UAB and Troy University. I have a BS and M.Ed in Elementary Education, as well as, my certfication in Instructional Leadership and Administration. I am the “knee” baby of 3! My oldest sister passed away in a car accident April 10, 1999. My younger sister resides in Colorado Springs, CO with her family.

     This will be my third year teaching 2nd Grade at Fairhope. Before now, I taught 8 years of Pre-K 3/Head Start in both Alabama and Georgia, three years of 2nd Grade, and one year of 5th Grade in the Phenix City Public Schools. I absolutely love teaching 2nd Grade! It is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students. I attempt to teach with a passion for my subject so all of my students develop a desire to become life-long learners. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. It is so important to keep communication open between us and I would love to talk to you whenever you feel the need! I look forward to a great year together!
