District Home


Welcome to Marvin Elementary School!  My name is Carol Tally and this is my second year at Marvin.  I have been teaching for 18 years, 12 of which are with San Diego Unified.  I have worked with students from preschool through high school, both in general education and special education. I received my bachelor’s degree and multiple subject teaching credential from California State University San Marcos, my special education credential through an intern program with San Diego Unified School District, and my master’s degree in teaching with a specialization in autism through National University.

I am originally from Malibu and moved to the San Diego region in 1991. My husband and I have one son and live in Oceanside. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, reading, history and baking. I also enjoy spending time with my family and volunteering at my church. What I enjoy most about teaching is seeing the growth that students make throughout the year. I look forward to working with the students, parents, and staff at Marvin this year.
