In early November, Mr. Markus was selected to be the replacement teacher for multiple classes previously taught by Ms. Brown at Meridian Sr. High School.

Ms. Brown stepped down from her teaching position because of urgent family matters that were taking place at the time and soon after a new face was entered into the school.

Markus was found by a “friend of a friend” and decided to take the position right away. With 17 years of teaching under his belt, he was well-equipped for the classes given to him as sophomore Jesse Damery mentioned, “He is very smart and easy to understand.” 

Once in the class, Markus went right to work. Students soon learned that their old way of learning was, for the most part, gone. They were set up with daily assignments, practice on Google classroom, and homework as well. This was a surprise and did not interest many students until they actually tried and saw results.

Junior Erin Fasick said, “It is just hard to go from one teacher and their ways then to another teacher and learn a different way.”  With that in mind, there is another catch, Markus is only a temporary substitute and stated, “I plan on staying until the end of the year.”

Though being a new face, Markus fit right in with the school and students, if you were to stand outside of the door of his class, you would often hear laughter or a new lesson being taught. His personality is something that you only dream to find with a teacher as a kid, being downright hilarious but at the same time making the class very understandable for each student who wants to learn.

Damery and Fasick both have one thing in common, which is they both would like Markus to stay at least until the end of the school year or maybe longer.
