Machetta, Mrs. Marcia

English Department

Mrs. Marcia Machetta currently teaches English III, Honors English II, and High School Media. She has been teaching at Seneca High School since the 1984-85 school year. Prior to coming to Seneca, she taught one year at Atkinson High School in Atkinson, Illinois, where in addition to teaching English, she also taught two French classes.

Mrs. Machetta has also taught English I, English II, Creative Writing, Drama, Humanities, and Reading Development in the past. Her current extra-curricular activities include Drama Club Adviser and Yearbook Adviser.  She has also coached volleyball, softball, and directed many school plays through the years.

After graduating from Marseilles High School, Mrs. Machetta then earned an Associate’s Degree from Illinois Valley Community College before moving on to Illinois State University, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in English. She did her student teaching at Ottawa High School. Eventually Mrs. Machetta graduated from National-Louis University with a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction.

She is married to Steve, and they have two sons, Michael and Marc. Michael currently teaches PE and Health at Dwight Grade School, and Marc has a Master's Degree in Accounting and is a Financial Analyst with Performance Health, Inc. in Warrenville.  Mrs. Machetta enjoys going to professional baseball games when possible (Go Cubs!).  In fact, she would love to travel to every National League ballpark to watch the Cubs play, but that could take a while! She still loves watching Dancing with the Stars after all these years, and she also likes to travel, read, listen to music, and watch movies, but not all at the same time! She really loves to spend time with her two grand-doggies, Oakley and Reece.

"I consider teaching your children a privilege and a pleasure, and I love coming to Seneca High School every day.  Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have about your son/daughter's progress in my classes."
