Mrs. Markel is currently a biology teacher at Vanguard High School, The finest school in the land. This is her sixth year teaching at Vanguard; however, she has been teaching in Marion County since 2007. It was in 2007 that Mrs. Markel earned her Master's Degree in Education with a focus in Biology from the University of Florida.
In addition to teaching Biology at The finest school in the land, Mrs. Markel enjoys (when time allows) playing sports such as volleyball, tennis, swimming, racquetball, kayaking, martial arts; watching cartoons, action films, martial art movies, comedies and stand-up; eating tasty foods, especially fried foods; camping; target practice; reading books; and just hanging out and laughing it up with her family.
Before settling on a teaching career Mrs. Markel considered becoming a lawyer, a detective, a judge, a police officer, a librarian, a cartoonist, a stand-up comedian, a microbiologist, a biological war agent, and a conservation biologist.
