My name is Morgan Doyle, and I am a graduate of Walla Walla University. I studied Elementary Education and received a minor in Humanities. I also played volleyball all four years, and worked in the athletic department. I thoroughly enjoyed my time studying in Walla Walla and student teaching in the neighboring school Davis Elementary. I am excited to be returning home to Everett, and working at my alma mater, St. Mary Magdalen, as a 6th grade Language Arts and History teacher. Some of the things I enjoy are mac and cheese, giraffes, yellow flowers, and playing and coaching volleyball. I look forward to an amazing year, and meeting all of the St. Mary Magdalen families and friends.

My name is Melissa Morrier-Turk, I am a graduate of SMM (class of 1986) and have been a member of the parish community much of my life. I have a B.S. in Business with an emphasis in Human Resources from Central Washington University and have spent my 23 years working in this field, traveling all over the USA and Canada as an HR Director, as well as a corporate trainer. My husband Mike and I have two kids, our son will be a Junior at Archbishop Murphy High School and our daughter will be a 7th grader here at SMM. As a parent, I have been an active member of the SMM community, most recently wrapping up my role as the Parent Club President this year and V.P. last year. I have also been an active member of the auction for the past 8 years, along with numerous opportunities to volunteer in my children’s classrooms and through club activities. In my off time I enjoy running, cycling, hiking, anything outdoorsy really. I have absolutely loved working with and getting to know so many of the families here at SMM as a parent and am looking forward to getting to know you all better as part of your school community!
My name is Jennifer Stemerick. I grew up in Everett, where I enjoyed going to St. Mary Magdalen School K-8 and Archbishop Murphy High School. I received my Bachelor degree in Elementary Education from Western Washington University and Master’s Degree in Literacy Instruction at Seattle University. I have enjoyed teaching 3rd, 5th, and 6th, grades at S.M.M. I’m excited to be a support teacher to teach and help where needed in different grades this year. My husband and I were honored that Father Olson married us at St. John’s Mission in 2010. We are blessed with our three kids. My favorite things are relaxing with family and friends, reading, hiking, art, learning sign language, and taking lots of pictures.
