Marie Manning is an experienced and lifelong educator. Teaching is what she knows best. Marie's heart for serving our community and giving our children the best education possible began in 1970 when she earned her first job as a teacher. Eventually, Marie would go on to serve in multiple positions, including vice principal and principal until she was elected superintendent of the St. Clair County Board of Education in 1997, where she still serves today in the role of Vice-President.
During her first few years in the role as superintendent, she learned that the school system only had around $80,000 in reserve funds.
