My name is Marlene Jacobs, and I am the Reading Interventionist at Cowpens Elementary School. This is my 17th year teaching, and my 4th year at Cowpens Elementary School, but this is my very first year teaching virtually. I am the Second Grade Teacher for Spartanburg District 3 After high school, I graduated with an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education from Andrew College and later graduated from USC Upstate with my Bachelors of Science in Early Childhood Education. I am a National Board Certified Teacher, and in 2015 became a Certified Reading Recovery Teacher through Clemson University. I am currently working on my Master’s Degree with a focus in Literacy.
