Petition to Keep Alexandra Marques as a Teacher in the Danvers School System
Hello to all Danvers Citizens who are vested in the Education of the Town!
This petition was created to support a 2nd grade Great Oak Elementary teacher, Alexandra Marques, in getting her contract renewed with Danvers Public Schools. Her contract was terminated this month without explanation, and the school is continuing to hire new teachers at present time.
Mrs. Marques taught at Great Oak for the 2019-2020 school year. In that short time, she made a huge impact on not only each one of her students, but the parents as well. She quickly and easily gained the respect and friendship among her colleagues, peers, and the parents alike with her infectious positivity and vibrant energy. Additionally, Mrs. Marques was nominated for the 2020 DESE’s MA Teacher of the Year award. Prior to joining the Great Oak community, she also taught 4th grade at Highlands Elementary, where she was a beloved member of their school for 2 years.
We are requesting your support to petition the Danvers Administration to renew her contract, and keep her as a teacher in our school district. Mrs. Marques’s dedication, experience, and most importantly; love of teaching, make her an invaluable member of our educational structure. Our children need teachers like Mrs. Marques, and we would be doing them a huge disservice to deprive them of this.
Please consider signing and sharing this petition to show your support!
