Marne Watts, AIG Teacher

Hello my name is Marne Watts. I am the AIG (Academically Gifted) teacher here at ZES. This is my 20th year of teaching. Prior to becoming an AIG teacher, I worked as a 3rd grade and 4th grade teacher in Franklin County. 


I graduated from Meredith College in 1991 with a BS in Early Childhood. I received my Masters degree in Elementary Education from Barton College in 2012. 


I married my highschool sweetheart in 1991. I have 3 grown children and 1 granddaughter, which is the light of my life! 


When I am not at school, I enjoy going to the beach, reading and spending time with my family.
