I am Jack Marine. My legal given name is Jacob, but everone calls me Jack. No one in my family was a Marine, but my father was one of the few Marines in the Army!
I graduated college in 1978 and worked in the Apparel Industry for nearly twenty years. In 1996, I went back to school at Cabrini College to study elementary education. After I earned my PA K-6 certification, I started teaching in The Philadelphia School District. I've been teaching for eleven years, teaching elementary science at two different charter schools for the past seven (years). I am currently seeking a new position for this fall.
I think some charter schools are very successful and work great. But I haven't worked for any of these schools yet, in my brief career in education.
