8th Grade Health
6th and 7th Grade Health/National Junior Honor Society Advisor/Department Head
Greetings! My name is Marlissa Morton & I’m in my tenth year of teaching here at Ebenezer Middle School. Prior to teaching, I worked as a Surgical Technologist in plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as labor and delivery. I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from the University of South Carolina Upstate and later went on to pursue a Master’s as well as an Educational Specialist degree from Walden University. For the past two years, I have been teaching Health & STEM classes for grades six through eight, but before that, I taught seventh grade Science. I was born and raised here in Sumter, and I am a graduate of Crestwood High School. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, traveling, shopping just a little, and spending time with my daughter and other family members. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and presenting students with a challenge as I assist them in developing their educational toolbox that is filled with strategies and techniques to help them succeed in any class. As an educator, I allow optimism as the foundation for each child’s success because I know all students can learn, they do it in their own way on their own time!
