Introducing Marqetta Dollison
The Christ School is delighted to welcome Marqetta Dollison to our kindergarten team this year. Marqetta and her husband Tyrone have been married 11 years. They have 5 children; Tyrone III, who will be 8 in September, Naomi, age 6, Zoe, age 4, Noelle, age 2.5 yrs and Brielle, who will be 1 year old in September. “One of my love languages is quality time so I absolutely love spending time with my family and our family friends exploring and doing fun things together,” says Marqetta. “I am a vocalist and have been from a very young age. I love to make music, and sing worship. My husband is also a musician so it’s fun when we can make music together.”
Marqetta says, “I initially went to college thinking I would be an accountant. It wasn’t until a counselor I had my first year of college, observing my personality, challenged me on that. I realized then that most of my life up until that point was centered around kids (i.e. babysitting, tutoring programs, etc.). I am so grateful for that counselor and have her to thank for my amazing life because that one conversation led me to where I am today. I love connecting with the students and doing my part to help them become who God created them to be.”
“My favorite thing about teaching Kindergarten is the newness of the students,” she continues. “The freshness of their experience. They’re as excited and wide-eyed to be here as I am to teach them! I look forward to giving them a memorable Kindergarten experience, where they feel loved, seen and heard. There’s a quote, ‘They may forget what you said-but they will never forget how you made them feel.’ And that is what I carry with me as I’m with them every day. One practical thing I look forward to doing with them is the 3 Piggy Opera. I love music so it’s going to be exciting to share my passion for music with them in a new and different way!”
“I explored The Christ School for the next step in my career because my good friends, who we moved from California to Florida for, raved about it!” says Marqetta. “I have them to thank for introducing us to the blessing that is TCS. When I toured the campus and talked with Mr. Noto and Dr. Farrant, I knew this school was different from other private schools. The emphasis of Christ drew me and there was no other school I would have rather taught at, even more have my own children attend. I have already enjoyed experiencing the kindness and authentic hearts of everyone here. Everyone has a heart to love others and be helpful and it makes for a beautiful work environment.”
Marqetta shares her favorite Bible verses:
One is Galatians 2:20: I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
She also considers Colossians 3:17, Psalm 24 and Psalm 91 to be favorites as well!
