Audrey Markel

I am overwhelmed with gratitude at the opportunity to join the team at WMC! I grew up in Texas and then graduated from Ouachita Baptist University where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and in Secondary Education. I then earned a Master’s of Science Degree in Educational Theory and Practice from Arkansas State University. In 2017, I completed my National Board Certification in Grades 6-12 Mathematics. I coached soccer and taught mathematics for five years in West Memphis, Arkansas before getting married and moving to Muskegon in 2017 where I taught at Muskegon High School.

Favorite scripture:
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. –  2 Corinthians 5:17-21
