Ms. Marsha Veninga

I live in Bloomington, Illinois, with my husband and daughter.  Before moving to Bloomington in 2005, I lived in Chicago where I taught middle school Science for nine years.  Although I took several years off from being a teacher to be a stay-at-home mom, I am excited to be back in the classroom.  I served as a long-term substitute teacher at Bloomington Junior High School before getting a full-time job at Blue Ridge Junior High School where I taught 7th and 8th grade Science from January, 2014 until May, 2016. During the 2016/2017 school year, I was able to return to BJHS.  I taught Science on the 8B team until 2018 when I moved to the 7H team.

As a teacher, it should be no surprise that I love to learn!  I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Florida and later attended the University of Minnesota to complete a graduate program in Life Science Education.  Like most teachers I know, I think learning should be a lifelong endeavor so I regularly attend conferences and seminars and take college courses to help me improve my teaching skills.
