Mr. Marlon Beckford

Blessings (Wah Gwaun). I am a proud Jamaican who currently resides in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina, USA. 

My name is Marlon Anthony Beckford and I’m honored to be on this journey as an educator for the past 17 years. My tertiary education started at Bethlehem Moravian College in Jamaica where I obtained a Diploma in Education in the field of Business and Computing. I attended the University of Technology Jamaica and was awarded a Bachelors or Education degree (honours) in Business and Computing.

My goal is to continue the cycle of education to change the life of our students.

 I migrated 2019 to join the list of excellent educators at Northampton County. I’m in the CTE department at Northampton County High School where I teach the following courses, Microsoft word, Microsoft Excel, Adobe Visual Design and Computer Science Principles 1. I am the head coach of the cross country team and also coach of the female track and field team.

The things i enjoyed doing in my spare time is preparing Jamaican foods (Jerk Chicken, Jerk Pork and Curry Chicken). 

A little bit of Jamiacan Patois transalated into english.

- Yeah Man - Yes.
