Email: Mrs. Dolby
Mrs. Marcia Dolby grew up bare-footed in North Miami Beach exploring parks, the Atlantic coastline, and assorted waterways while cheering on the great Miami Dolphin team of the 1970’s. Her love of learning and desire to teach took her to Asbury College in Wilmore, KY where she earned her B.S. degree in elementary education in 1981. After teaching 5th graders at Lakeland Christian School for four years, she began teaching “across the dining room table” as the Lord gave her five children and a Presbyterian pastor to nurture.
In recent years as a foster mom, the Lord taught her much about the emotional needs of children and how they affect the learning process. She brings to VCS a love for children, an insatiable love of learning, and a vigorous desire to glorify God in all of life.
