          Hello, my name is Marcia Rash Ireland.  I live in the Cool Spring Community.  I have 2 wonderful children, Marcus Ireland and Marissa Ireland-Ratcliffe, and two wonderful grandchildren Sawyer and Ruby.   


          I began working at Cool Spring August 1994 as a third grade assistant and bus driver.  In August 1999, I went back to school to become a teacher.  During those years, I worked as an assistant in K-4th grades.  In 2006, I graduated from Mitchell Community College with an Associate in Arts degree with a concentration in Elementary Education and then in December 2009, I graduated from Appalachian State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education with a minor in History.  Although this is my 25th year at Cool Spring Elementary, it will only be my nineth year as a teacher.     


          My goal is to make a difference in your child’s life this year while he/she is in first grade!
