Ms. Marlowe Townsend
Family Community Specialist
Welcome to the 2022-2023 Academic School year! My name is Marlowe Townsend, and I am the Family Community Specialist here at Compton-Drew. I am 29 years old and a mother of two young children ages 3 and 4. I am very family oriented, and I love the outdoors! I studied Social Work and Education at Lindenwood University. I then worked in Early Childhood education for 8 years before becoming a substitute teacher at SLPS in 2020. With this being my first year, I am very excited to become a fellow Dolphin and I am looking forward to meeting all of you. As your new FCS, I am here to support you; the students and the parents, in creating an environment that will promote academic success! I am your advocate, I am your ally, I am your friend, and I will do my best to support each one of you in your endeavors to greatness! I am here to create a peaceful ambiance and to ensure that every voice is heard, and every concern is held in the highest regard. This school year I plan to
- Develop and maintain strong, positive relationships with each student and family!
- Plan and facilitate schoolwide events and activities, in collaboration with our community partners, that students and parents will be excited to participate in!
- Keep all parents informed about their rights, as well as resources within the community in order to improve family relations and promote academic success!
For the 2022-2023 school year, I hope that all of you are excited about the upcoming events, activities, and meetings that we are hosting here at Compton-Drew and throughout the Dolphin community. In this, we hope to get everyone involved, enthusiastic, and motivated to be an active part of the Dolphin family!
I do plan to be in the hallways and classrooms periodically so that I can become familiar with all the new faces, but you are highly encouraged to contact me during office hours by phone or email! I will be happy to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
Let’s make memories that will make our hearts smile for years to come!
