This is Mr. Marcum's Website. I will be posting information, homework assignments and important upcoming dates on this page. You need to make sure that you check this page everyday. A little bit about myself: I graduate from Barberton High School and then the University of Akron. I received my Master's Degree in 2008. Though I graduated from the Magic City, my mother and my 7 aunts and uncles (along with a few cousins) graduated from Northwest. My grandparents lived in Canal Fulton until the day they died.
I have been at Northwest Middle School since '99 and absolutely love the students, their parents, the community and the staff here at the school. Besides teaching American History, I have taught 7th grade social studies, I have coached baseball her at Northwest, basketball and I was in charge of Academic Challenge at the middle school. I am married and we have a son, in the Perry School district, who is involved in various sports and activities (baseball, football, basketball). We have four dogs (Abbie, Buckeye, Bella and our puppy Chunk), and 4 cats (Chloe, Cookie, Nikko and Zoey). Besides coaching my son's baseball team(s), we like to camp, fish, hunt, vacation at Daytona Beach and spend a lot of family time together.
I really love American History and teaching 8th graders. I am always here to help and I hope that if you ever have questions and need my help, you do not hesitate to see me and ask for it.
