I have been at OCE for many years. I like elementary school because I love molding and shaping this age group through positive interactions. I am originally from Bladen County, NC. I love spending time with my family and playing with my grandson who also attends OCE. I love baking, dancing, photography and scrapbooking.

Hi! My name is Marion Escoto and I am so excited about my first year at Olive Chapel. I was a preschool teacher for over 10 years before I decided to change my career path and become a TA. I have a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education from Radford university and I am currently a Graduate student in the MAT program at Meredith College where I am working on my Masters in ESL. 
My husband, Jose and I am have lived in Apex for 20 years with our 4 amazing children Anna 16, Seve 14, Anthony 12, and Bella 10.They keep us busy, but we still find time to play soccer, go fishing, biking,and just have fun as a family. We love to be outside! My family is my greatest blessing!
 
Being a part of a child's education is such an priviledge and I am so proud to be a part of their journey at such a great school!

I am excited to be apart of the OCE Clipper ship family.  We moved to Apex in 2013 and we just love it here while it has only been a few years it seems like home for a lot longer.  I am originally from Gibraltar where I lived on a boat for 11 years.  Previous jobs have had me underwater diving with sharks, fish and sea turtles as I worked as a Dive Safety Officer as various aquariums. So it is only fitting that I find myself aboard a new ship helping to steer our young sailors through their educational journey here at OCE. I have a Bachelors’ degree in Psychology with an Associate degree in Business and Finance. Both my children attend Olive Chapel and have had a phenomenal education thus far. When not at work you can find me with my family at the beach, on the lake boating or camping or off having some other kind of adventure.  We like to have fun and experience new things, taking off and seeing where the road takes us.  I love going to music concerts, spending time with friends and making the most of every opportunity. I am very excited to be here at Olive Chapel and watch the joy on the faces of your children as they learn and grow everyday.  Thank you for entrusting them in our hands.

I moved to Apex in 2012 from California and have fallen in love with NC. I have a bachelor’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from California State University Chico and look forward to being an asset to the Olive Chapel school community. This is my first year at OCE and I’m excited to be a part of this wonderful staff. I am the proud mother of two amazing boys and I love spending my free time hanging out with my husband and sons. I also like to do yoga, baking and anything that allows me to be creative. I really enjoy working with elementary aged children and watching them grow as lifelong learners.

This is my second year at Olive Chapel,  I have been with Wake county schools for (5) years and have taught for over 24 years. I began teaching in Boca Raton, Florida,(where I was born and raised) and then moved to Virginia Beach where I taught Second through Fifth grades. I also spent 5 years in Onslow County where I taught Elementary PE, First and Second grades. When I returned to Virginia Beach I spent 2 years teaching Kindergarten. I'm married to a Retired Marine of 30 years, we moved to Willow Spring 6 years ago and built our forever home. I have 4 grown children and 2 grandchildren. I enjoy going to the beach, traveling to new places and of course spending my free time with my grandchildren. I am so excited to be back in Kindergarten and am looking forward to a fun year!

I am originally from Cordova, Alabama, but have lived in North Carolina since 1989. I graduated from the University of Alabama with a bachelor’s degree in marketing and a master’s degree in elementary education. I graduated, got married, and moved away all in the same year! 


Before coming to Olive Chapel Elementary in 2014, I taught 3rd grade at Apex Elementary for almost 23 years. I have been blessed to work with so many amazing people over the course of my teaching career, and am especially enjoying being at OCE. I’ve had the opportunity to work with every grade level in some capacity here at OCE. 


My husband and I have 3 children, Scott, Alex, and Abby.  Scott recently graduated from the University of Alabama, Alex is currently a sophomore at UNCW, and Abby is in high school at Panther Creek. They have kept us busy over the years with their band activities and this is how we spend most of our free weekends, traveling with them to various competitions in the area. Music is a huge part of our lives, and in fact my husband and I met as we were both band members in college at U of A. I played trombone and he played saxophone. We often joke that we could have our own band within our family since collectively we play trombone, saxophone, trumpet, mellophone, french horn, flute, guitar, and piano. We are also big college football fans and in particular enjoy watching the Alabama Crimson Tide (Roll Tide!!). ​

I have been at Olive Chapel for one and a half years, although I have been with Wake County for 17 years.  I enjoy working with elementary kids as they are eager and happy about learning. I am a native of Raleigh, N.C. and have lived here my entire life. My favorite activities are riding my bike, walking, and reading books. My favorite team of course is NC State. Go Wolf Pack!

We moved to Apex, NC in 2005 from High Point, NC. Prior to that we lived in Poughkeepsie, NY; Akron, Ohio; Columbus, Ohio and Lexington, Ky. I am from Louisville, Ky and graduated from Univ of Louisville with a B.S. in Political Science. I love everything about the Ky. Derby and prefer the “red shirt” over the “blue one” in everything college sports.

I chose a career in the public school systems to better serve my “move around a lot” family needs. We have made Apex our home now and for the past 10 years, I served students, parents and the classroom teacher as teacher assistant in the Special Needs PreK at Baucom Elementary.

I have two girls, Natalie and Kendra. Natalie was a softball pitcher for UNC Pembroke and recently graduated from Campbell Law School. Kendra is a sophomore at NC State with a double major in Engineering and Spanish. I made the switch to Olive Chapel because my husband and I found the year round vacation schedule appealing now that our family needs have changed.

Teachers are key to a child’s learning journey. My children and I have been blessed by many teachers along our path. I choose to pay this blessing forward by supporting the teacher in the classroom setting so the children at Olive Chapel get the best of what their teacher can give every day.
