Hi! I'm Mrs. Lippenga. I'm entering my 19th year teaching reading and language arts and beginning my tenth year at Marlington Middle School. My husband (Tim), six-year-old son (Jackson), two-year-old daughter (Isla), and dog (Harley) make up my household. I enjoy many different activities such as spending time with my family, being outdoors, reading, exercising, and traveling.
Hi! I'm Mrs. Burgess. I have been teaching Language Arts since 2006 and I've been working in the Marlington district for 7 years. I'm currently working on my master's degree in school counseling from Kent State University. I live in Canton with my husband and two children, Madeline and Aydan. I love spending time with family, being outside, traveling, and, of course, reading :) I'm looking forward to a great year!!

I graduated from Marlington High School, attended Mount Union College and later earned my Masters from Akron University. I enjoy volleyball and have been coaching for awhile at the high school level. I am looking forward to another successful year getting to know your children and helping them learn about themselves and the world around them.
