Almost 3 years ago, Beth and Marcus met at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. They shared the same major, English Education, and soon began dating. After graduating in May 2007, Marcus and Beth both began their careers as teachers at Sky Vista Middle School in Aurora, Colorado teaching Language Arts to America's future. In their spare time, they enjoy being outdoors, doing everything from backpacking, to fishing, to snowshoeing. They also enjoy helping old ladies cross the street, playing tennis on Wii, cooking, refinishing furniture, long walks on the beach, chaperoning school dances, gardening, collecting vinyl albums, underwater basket weaving, photography, cycling, and recycling. They became homeowners in June and less than two weeks later, got married.
