Hi! I'm Mrs. Lippenga. I'm entering my 17th year teaching reading and language arts and beginning my eighth year at Marlington Middle School. I am really looking forward to this school year with the continuation of using the iPads and the blended learning concept. My husband (Tim), four-year-old son (Jackson), newborn daughter (Isla),and two dogs (Sadie and Harley) make up my household. I enjoy many different activities. These include: spending time with my family, being outdoors, reading, exercising, traveling, watching and playing sports, attending the theatre, and listening to country music.
Hello! I'm Mrs. McAlister! This is my second year at Marlington Middle School and my fourth year of teaching reading and language arts. I have always enjoyed reading and writing, and I love having the chance to share my favorite books with students. I also enjoy traveling and learning new things with my husband, Douglas. So far, we've taken cooking, dancing, and fencing classes together!
