Degrees and Certifications:
Hello all! My name is Lori Markos and I am so excited to begin my new journey in Boerne ISD. I have been a teacher since 2001 and have taught 5th, 2nd and 3rd grade. I have worked in Corpus Christi ISD as well as Northside ISD in San Antonio. In January 2015, I became a Reading Specialist for NISD. I look forward to working with our dyslexic and dysgraphic students at Cibolo Creek Elementary as the new Dyslexia Specialist.
I am originally from Corpus Christi, TX and moved to San Antonio in 2007. This past December I got engaged to my fiance Chase and, as of last month, we now call the beautiful city of Boerne home. I am also mommy to Maxx (10) and Milo (8). I am excited that my boys will be at CCES with me in 5th and 2nd grade! The addition of my adorable, soon-to-be step-daughter makes our family complete!
Reading and writing have always been my passion. I am dyslexic myself and my 5th grade son has also been identified with dyslexia. I have a Masters in Advanced Literacy and am formally trained in numerous reading interventions including Reading by Design, Herman Method, Corrective Reading and Lexia. I am also a nationally certified, Abydos trained writing teacher. In December of 2017, I received my Masters in Educational Leadership and Administration and hold a principal's certification as well. I am a firm believer in being a life-long learner and have set a goal to start working on my doctoral degree within the next five years.
