Dr. Gwen Marra

Professor of Education

I am excited to be teaching in the Education Department at Dordt. I primarily teach reading and early childhood education courses each year. I completed my Doctor of Education degree at the University of South Dakota, in Curriculum and Instruction with a literacy focus in 2014. I am a graduate of Dordt's Masters in Education program and I have a BA in Elementary Education from Dordt with endorsements in reading and early childhood education. I enjoy working with future educators as well as teachers in the field. I am a Wilson Certified Dyslexia Practioner and the Director of Thrive Center for Achievement. I have many years of teaching experience at preschool and elementary schools.
