All about Ms. Domke
Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Marti Domke
I am a 1989 graduate of UNC-Wilmington with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Health & Physical Education with K-12 teaching certification. Go Seahawks!
My first teaching job was in 1990 aboard Camp Lejeune, NC. I taught PE to grades K-5 at Berkeley Elementary School for 2 years before moving to Massachusetts. Once in Massachusettes, I worked as a health room assistant for East Longmeadow Public Schools and traveled to 3 different schools helping students who came to the nurse's office. In January 1994 a health & PE position became available at St. Mary's Catholic School in Longmeadow and I taught there until my second son was born. For the next 10 years, I had the privilege of being a stay-at-home mom. During that time, I had another son and when he started kindergarten at Carolina Forest, I went back to work as a substitute teacher. In the fall of 2005, a PE position at Northwoods Elementary became available and I taught there for six years (2005-2011). During the summer of 2011, my family relocated to Raleigh, briefly, and returned to Jacksonville six months later. The following fall (2012), I worked as an instructional assistant at Carolina Forest International Elementary. I loved the opportunity to work with the students in a smaller, more personal setting, but two years later, a PE2 position opened up at Dixon Elementary School and off I went to the Sneads Ferry area. I enjoyed teaching at DES for seven years, but when the chance to teach closer to home came up, I jumped on it! I am so excited to be part of the Bell Fork Bulldog family! I am looking forward to teaching the students about the importance of physical education, making safe and healthy choices, working hard, and being kind through a variety of movement activities, exercises, and games. I am all about communication, so please feel free to email me, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you and I look forward to working with your child(ren) this year.
I am originally from Alexandria Virginia but have spent most of my life in Eastern North Carolina. I am the mother of 3 sons (Matt 34, Ben 27, and Aaron 22). My oldest son, Matt, is self-employed. My middle son, Ben, is a 2017 graduate of ECU, and he just received his master's degree (May 2021) in Hispanic Linguistics from NCSU! My youngest son, Aaron, is a senior at UNCW (Go Seahawks!) studying history. He will graduate in December 2021.
I have three fur-babies: one cat (Mollie) and two dogs (Pudge & Lacey). I enjoy spending time at the beach, reading, walking, biking, baking, and gardening. I love going to concerts, musicals, sporting events, and outlet malls! My favorite color is orange. My favorite holiday season is Christmas. I also love spending time with my friends, family, and pets!
