Mrs. Rachael Dudley

I hope each of you had a wonderful summer. The 2019-2020 school year will be my 21st year educating students.  I grew up here in Effingham County. I attended Marlow Elementary, Central Junior High School, and graduated from ECHS. My husband, Scott, and I have been married for 29 years. We have 2 grown children, Caroline and Matthew. Caroline is married to my son-in-law, Casey. Matthew is engaged to my soon to be daughter-in-law, Kelsie. Scott and I love when we are able to have all 4 "big kids" at our house at the same time. 
This year I will be teaching ELA/SS on a 2-person team. Ms. Burns will teach MATH/SCIENCE.  While we are still guiding our 5th graders, keeping up with assignments is the responsibility of the student. Students will not be allowed to call home for someone to bring missing assignments. We will use the student planner as a means of home/school connection. Please check your child's planner daily. Weekly newsletters go home on Mondays. Graded papers go home each Wednesday. You will receive a 5th Grade Brochure at Open House. 
If you have any questions or concerns, please notify me. Most of the time situations can be resolved with a quick email or phone call.  I am looking forward to another wonderful new school year here at Marlow!
