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 child and when he started kindergarten at Carolina Forest, I began substitute teaching. In the fall of 2005, a PE position at Northwoods Elementary became available and I taught there until 2011. At that time, my family relocated to Raleigh but returned to Jacksonville six months later. I worked as an instructional assistant at Carolina Forest International Elementary from 2012-2014. I came to Dixon Elementary in the fall of 2014 and I have enjoyed working with and being a part of the DES Bulldog staff and family.
I am originally from Alexandria Virginia but have spent most of my life in coastal North Carolina. I am the mother of 3 sons (Matt 33, Ben 25, an Aaron 20). My oldest son, Matt, is self-employed. My middle son, Ben, is a 2017 graduate of ECU, and is now working on his master's degree in Hispanic Linguistics at NCSU! My son, Aaron, is a junior at UNCW (Go Seahawks!) and plans to major in criminology or history.
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!
