Lead Primary Guide
AMS Montessori Primary Diploma, MACTE
Ms. Marissa's passion for the Montessori method began as a volunteer during her senior year of high school where she was amazed to see children working individually, choosing work freely and cleaning up their own spills! Marissa earned her BA in Human Development with an emphasis in child development from Pacific Oaks College in Pasadena and shortly after she completed her AMS Montessori training from the Montessori Teacher Training Academy in Dana Point, CA.
A California native, Marissa and her husband recently became the parents of beautiful boy and girl twins! When she's not teaching or juggling babies she loves spending time with family, going to the beach, traveling, hiking and learning French.
