Marlys Roos is a certified teacher who holds a B.A. in Speech and Drama and an M.A. in education with a concentration in Language Arts and Social Studies. Before and after the Lord`s call to teach full-time (first in public school, and then as a homeschool mom), she was recruited to teach evening classes in communications at several locations including Georgia State University`s Department of Continuing Education. Her writing skills were honed during a full-time, ten-year marketing career as she wrote advertisements and reports, made presentations, created company newsletters, developed training programs, and, of course, wrote many business letters. Creative writing experience includes writing (directing and performing in) mystery dinner theatre, scripts for churches, and published teaching materials for vacation Bible schools and children`s discipleship. She and her family are members of Perimeter Church.
