• Welcome to Mrs. Márquez Choate's Homepage 
    English as a Second Language
         It is my pleasure to be among the faculty members of Mineral Springs Middle School, home of the MIGHTY BULL DOGS.  I believe that all children are capable of learning and being successful when provided with the right tools, coupled with high expectations set forth by ALL the stakeholders.  I have been teaching ESL since 2002, and this is my 5th year at MSMS. Currently I co-teach English Language Arts with Mrs. Jones (6th) Ms. Brake (7th) and Ms. Santos (8th).  When I am not in a co-teaching setting I have the pleasure of working with a diverse group of students from various countries teaching English as a second language (ESL). 


    I sponsor the "SWAG" Club.   What is SWAG?  Swag is a character building club.  Our goal is to develop Young Men of Standard and Young Ladies of Virtue.  The term "SWAG" was appropriately coined by our very own students.  The purpose for the club is to teach that true "SWAG" develops when being integral, respectful, and goal oriented is a daily practice.

    We meet biweekly and always have snacks available during our meetings.  Activities are centered on team and character building. We engage in age appropriate group discussions concerning matters that affect middle schoolers,  and great emphasis is on maintaining academic excellence to reach  high school, college and beyond.              
    We celebrate our "Bull Dog Pride" by helping maintain cleanliness on our campus.  Recently we have partnered up with Unlimited Success/Partnership for a Drug Free NC to create an awareness of the dangers of tobacco use.
       We are always looking  forward to enrolling new club members.   
     My daily goal is to leave footprints of hope and great enthusiasm for learning in the hearts of my students !!!!!!
