Hi, my name is Chelsea Cross and I teach kindergarten! This is my seventh year of teaching and my second year at Marion. I went to Stephens College and taught my first five years in Columbia Public Schools. I love being part of the Marion family! Over the summer I loved going hiking, reading, working out, and taking care of my plants and my sweet fish, Jonas. I am so excited to meet our kinders and to learn and have the best year!
Hi! My name is Katie Lederman and I teach kindergarten! This is my seventh year teaching and my fifth year at Marion. I also taught second grade before moving to kindergarten. I recently earned my masters in Teaching English as a Second Language and speak Spanish, and I am excited to bring some new learning into this school year! Over the summer, I got engaged to my best friend James, and we are so excited! I also have the best two dogs, Mya and Zoe. I enjoy walking my dogs, working out, reading, and spending time with my family and friends. I love being a part of the Marion family, and I’m looking forward to a lot of learning and fun this year!
Hello! My name is Pam Montgomery. I have been teaching for 22 years. I feel grateful to have taught 15 of those years in kindergarten. My husband and I have a daughter, who also teaches in Ritenour, and a son, who is in IT like his dad. I am excited about this school year, and I can’t wait to meet my kinders and their parents! We are going to learn and grow so much this year!
