Fumi Marquez received her B.A. from the University of California, San Diego (1988) and her M.Ed. from Auburn University at Montgomery (1992). She moved to Guam in 1997; the same year the DDESS Guam District was organized. She teaches first grade at Andersen Elementary School on Andersen Air Force Base, Guam. She is married and has three children. Mrs. Marquez enjoys teaching first grade because "it is an opportunity to spark young children's interest in learning and help parents develop teaching skills as well."

"In order for the teaching process to be successful and effective, a triad between teachers, students, and parents must exist. All parties must be involved in the education of children. The learning that takes place in the classroom should always be extended to the home."
