Charlene Merrifield, Media Specialist
I graduated from Marianna High School in 1973 and Chipola Jr. College in 1975. I received my BS degree in education in 1986 from Troy State University, and received my Master's in Elementary Education in 1994. I was in the classroom for 5 years teaching 1st and 4th grade at Grand Ridge School, Golson Elementary School, and Blountstown Elementary before coming to Marianna Middle to teach 6th grade for 4 years. In 1995, I became the Curriculum Specialist and served in that role for 8 years. In 2003, I took the Media Specialist certification test, passed, and assumed that position where I have been serving for the last 16 years. This is my 33rd year in education.
Marianna Middle School is an excellent school. I love working with middle school students and watching them grow.
