Bio

My name is Janice Marchman, and I am running to be your Democratic State Senator in Senate district 15 to provide real representation to our communities! I am a mom of two older teens and wife to Mike of 23 years. I'm also a trained systems engineer and former Vice President of the Thompson School Board. ​I was born and raised on air force bases across the country. My dad was an air force B-52 pilot and my mom cared for our family. As we moved from base to base, I attended public schools everywhere we went, so they are central to my values. I went to 14 different schools before graduating High School in South Georgia. After graduation, I attended Georgia Tech, where I met my husband, Mike, and earned an Industrial & Systems engineering degree. I worked for six years as an engineer in California. When my husband and I decided to start our family, we experienced how expensive childcare was, so we made the decision to cut back on some of those expenses by having me stay home with our children, which I did for 13 years. ​I found my calling in later in life as a teacher, and I have been teaching in Loveland for six years now. I teach middle school math at Erwin Middle School. My time as a teacher has been incredibly rewarding and inspiring, as I work with and see students come into their own, both academically and as their own people. ​During my time teaching, I became engaged with volunteer opportunities in the school district, which eventually propelled me into running for the local school board. I served on the Thompson School Board for three years between 2010-2013. After losing my re-election in 2013 to a slate of outside-funded, anti-public-school candidates, I worked hard to learn how to run local campaigns to take back our school board. I became involved with local community leaders in Loveland so that in 2015 I was able to work to elect 4 amazing candidates elected to bring pro-public-school policy back to the board. I've also participated in mills & bond elections in Loveland, which we passed successfully in 2018 strengthening the funding of our local schools and improving our children's education.
