• My name is Marlee Gardner.  This is my eighth year teaching at Graham A. Barden.  I was a Special Education teacher for fourteen years previously in Craven County.  My experience in the education field has taken me all over the world, including Mississippi, Tennessee, and Okinawa Japan.  I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education and a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Teaching.


    I am married to a retired marine and we have 2 daughters, who are both working in the education field.

    I enjoy singing, playing the piano and spending time with family and friends.
