About me …

Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling, people standing and outdoor

My name is Tracy Marrs.  Among other things – I am a mother, educator, and doctoral candidate.  I love education and stories.  I am working towards my doctorate in Mythological Studies with an emphasis in Depth Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute and I teach reading comprehension at San Bernardino Valley College.

The topic for my dissertation merges my two Masters degrees and my years of experience as a reading teacher by creating a curriculum that teaches college students how to read more meaningfully in order to increase reading comprehension and success in life in general. Please check out my concept paper under dissertation in the menu above and leave me some feedback.

I live in the mountains and enjoy the small town atmosphere of mountain life.  My past work experiences include photo editing at The Press Enterprise and teaching junior high and high school students at Noli Indian School.  I currently work for San Bernardino Valley College teaching students how to read at a college level and facilitating a faculty-guided tutoring room.

Last year, I began a little side project called Storytellers Retreats.  September 2016, I put on my first retreat at Camp de Benneville near the local Jenks Lake with my friends, Sally June, Kathy Jaffe, and Julia Sophia Paegle.  Since then, I had a day workshop at The Yoga Connections in Beaumont with the owner, Sally June and friends Kathy Jaffe and Parisa Danishevar.  I am currently brainstorming ideas for future projects but also slowing down a bit as I turn my attentions toward my dissertation writing.

It hasn’t always been easy, but I love the life I live and especially the people in it.

  1. Just found your lovely blog. Is there a sign up form to be on your mailing list that I missed?
    Remind me to connect you with my dear friend and fellow Pacifica graduate, Ann Buxie, who like you started a storytelling group. Hers is called’ Tales By The Sea’ in Malibu. Have you heard of it?

  2. Hey Thea – I thought there was a ‘Follow’ button but not sure :/ I’ll look into it.
    Haven’t heard about Ann’s group but it sounds very interesting. Wishing you the best.
    XOXO 🙂
