Hello! My name is Marissa Lawrence and I am so excited to be the Reading Specialist for this upcoming year!! As a Reading Specialist, I will be collaborating with teachers, parents, and students to provide additional literacy support. This is my sixth year in education. I graduated from St. Mary's University with a B.A. in Interdisciplinary English Language Arts and Reading and from The University of Texas at Arlington with a M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction in Literacy.
Here are some fun facts about me:
-I have two dogs!
-I grew up in a military family and have moved nine times!
-I have climbed to the top of Mt. Fuji in Japan and had to sleep on the mountain!!
