About Marie Rackham
Marie Sophia Rackham was born in 1934 and raised in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. She earned degrees in English and Geography from the University of British Columbia, and spent thirteen years studying piano with the Royal Conservatory of Music.
She worked as a public school teacher for thirty-four years, teaching at all levels from kindergarten to grade twelve; and taught piano and theory privately in her own studio for fourteen years.
Over her many years of teaching language arts, Marie developed her own curriculum for teaching basic grammar and punctuation, which was eventually published through the local Teacher's Resource Center and made available to all the schools in the district as a self contained workbook. This workbook became the inspiration for the award-winning grammar videos, produced by Splashes From The River Multimedia Entertainment Inc., featuring Marie herself.
