Mrs. Marchelle Jennings

My name is Marchelle Jennings and I am so excited to be one of your teachers for your last year of elementary school.  This is my 14th year here at Hardy Oak and I have taught 5th grade for all of them!  What can I say?  I LOVE 5th graders!  

Let me tell you a little about myself.  I moved to San Antonio 15 years ago.  I was born and raised in Virginia, right outside of our nation’s capital.  I do miss Virginia because I love the change in seasons but I do not miss the cold, sleet, and snow!  I try to get back east every year since I still have family there.  I attended graduate school at Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) and received my Masters in Education. I have been teaching since 1990, with several years taken off in between to be a mom.  Before I moved to Texas, I taught 7th grade math and some courses for the State Department in Washington, DC.

I am lucky enough to be married to a wonderful man named Chris and together we have 5 children.  Our oldest child, Monica, will be 24 in October.  She works and lives in Washington, DC.  Our middle daughter, Jillian, lives in New York City, and our youngest daughter, Kseniya, who is a senior in high school and is attending Madison High School participating in the AG magnet program.  We have two very active sons as well:   Matthew is attending his second year of college at UTSA and Michael, is a senior at MacArthur HS.  You will hear me talk about my kids a lot – mostly funny stories about them! 

When I am not at school you will find me spending time with my husband, family and friends.  I love to bake, shop, watch football, read, go to the lake, and swim. 

Please know that you are always welcome to email me if you ever have any questions or problems.  I am always here for you. I can’t wait to start the school year so I can get to know you better!  I look forward to spending a terrific year with you!
