Mrs. Kristen Markle
My name is Kristen Markle. This is my 19th year teaching here in NC! I graduated from West Liberty University in West Liberty, WV in 2005 with a B.A. in Elementary Education. I moved to Goldsboro, NC after graduating and taught kindergarten for 2 years at Brogden Primary School in Dudley, NC. When my husband, George, and I were married in 2006, I moved to Hubert, NC. We have lived in Hubert ever since. I worked at Silverdale Elementary for 13 years, teaching kindergarten and first grade. I worked at Queens Creek Elementary for 4 years, teaching first and third grade. I decided to come back home to Silverdale in the 2022-2023 school year. I have always loved the people and community that SDES has, and I am a strong supporter of The Leader in Me program. The culture at Silverdale is one that is not found everywhere! I will be teaching 1st grade this year and I am so excited to be back where I truly enjoy teaching. I am a proud wife and mother as well! My husband and I have been best friends since we were teenagers and have been happily married for 17 years. We have 2 amazing children, George 13 and Kailyn 10. Kailyn will be in fifth grade at Silverdale and George is now in 8th grade at Swansboro Middle School. Both love school and are enjoying every minute of it! We also have a 5-year-old husky named Remington. He keeps us busy and on our toes! I am a National Board Certified Teacher. I strive every day to challenge each student and create a love for learning in each one of them. I truly believe that there is a leader in each one of my students!
