ABOUT MAUREEN E. MARSHALL-JEFFERS
Ms. Marshall-Jeffers is a lifelong Educator/Administrator who retired in 2015 after more than 30 years of teaching. Ms. Marshall-Jeffers recognizes herself as one resource and has utilized a plethora of modalities to tap into various learning styles of her students, her future leaders. She is a poised, eloquent, empathetic, concerned individual who reflects “High Expectations” for all students, peers, and all she has the privilege to serve.
Ms. Marshall-Jeffers began her educational career in Trinidad/Tobago teaching early childhood. While residing in St. Croix, she dabbled in fashion design and tailoring. Her mother was a fashion designer and seamstress who saw her daughter’s interest in fashion and enrolled her in a fashion school at age eleven. She is known to have an eye for coordinating colors which is quite extraordinary. Maureen studied piano music, both theory and practical, which trained her to be very focused and disciplined. She strongly believes that children should be exposed to various disciplines in “The Arts” including instrumental music, singing, dance and drama as it helps them to be socially well-rounded. It is her plan to continue as an educator and open a school of fine arts for children beginning at age 3. Her written proposal is currently pending funding.
As an Educator, “born to serve”, Ms. Marshall-Jeffers is embedded with the natural tendency to educate beyond the walls of the classroom, or constraints of textbook or worksheets. She has intertwined her students and her daily experiences as the canvas for learning. She is an avid traveler whose many adventurous experiences and exposure to the world have empowered her to embrace aspects of all culture, and knows that the world is the “best classroom.”
Maureen embraces life in many capacities. She loves challenges, music and singing, (Gospel, Ballads and Calypso). She also serves as a Wedding/Fashion Consultant, Counselor and philanthropic supporter. Her belief is that “learning never ends; I’m open to learning, all children can and will learn”.
Born in “the land of the humming bird,” Trinidad/Tobago, Ms. Marshall-Jeffers first migrated to St. Croix, Virgin Islands where she met and married her spouse. She is a dedicated wife and mother of two successful young men, professionals in the scientific field. She publicly thanks her husband and her children for their support as she accomplished her childhood dream.
Ms. Marshall-Jeffers states that her parents, Ronald and Dorothy Marshall, were very influential and supportive with decisions she made in pursuing higher education to the highest degree obtainable. Her parents migrated to The United States of America in their early sixties in order to assist the family with the children while Maureen attended undergraduate school. Her parents also registered into a health program and obtained licenses as Nursing Assistants. Her fun-loving, comical Dad passed away seven months before she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Science. Maureen’s mother lived and enjoyed life extensively. Dorothy was an avid reader, traveled to various States and toured Europe. She loved adventure and life. She was a dedicated leader, who was compassionate and sincerely concerned for family, friends, and strangers. Ms. Marshall-Jeffers admired her mother’s tenacity to achieve knowledge. She pays tribute to her parents, especially her mother, who guided her household well and recently departed this world.
Ms. Marshall-Jeffers scholastic journey is halted for a while, but it is not over. She will be pursuing her dream of owning a School of Fine Arts and Foreign Languages which will develop well- rounded and joyful people into society and the world.
