Welcome to Marathon High School. My name is Emily Zachary, this is my second year here at Marathon where I teach English 9, English 11, yearbook, F.C.A. student council, JV Volleyball, and Junior High Track. I am originally from Belmont, Wisconsin and graduated from the University of Wisconsin La Crosse in May 2011. While at La Crosse I received my Bachelor's Degree in English Education and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). My first year of teaching was at Logan Middle School in La Crosse, WI where I taught 6th-8th Grade ELL. I have a passion for teaching literature and am very excited to be teaching at Marathon High School. I also love traveling and researching new cultures. I have had the incredible opportunity to live in New Orleans, and in Uganda, Africa for a time. My experiences have broadened my world view and opened my eyes. I am excited to get to know the students and community here at Marathon, and am looking forward to a fantastic year!
