Degrees and Certifications:
Hello JMS Foxes,
This is Ms. Mariel Hunkeler, your media specialist. Although I am originally from Cleveland, OH, I come here from Greenville, SC where I worked with Greenville County Schools. Over the years I have served that school district as a computer lab manager, webmaster, Math RTI teacher, reading teacher, and assistant librarian. My undergraduate work is from USC-Journalism, plus I hold a MA in Computer Resource & Information Management from Webster University and most recently, An MLIS in Library Science-Preservation & Archives from USC. I come to Marion County through the SCDE PACE program.
My husband is originally from Switzerland and we have two children, our Navy son is stationed in Japan and our daughter designs wigs for stage productions. I enjoy astronomy, technology, hiking and travel, and especially helping young and old alike to learn the value of preserving our historical past. Many weekends I can be found showing off the ancient petroglyphs at the Hagood Creek Petroglyph site at Hagood Mill in Upstate SC. I am pleased to be a part of Johnakin Middle School.
