Marisa De Silva '20

Teaching during a pandemic has taught me a lot about flexibility and the importance of building connections with students.

One of my favorite parts during my time at Teacher Prep was getting to know the other student teachers in my cohort. We formed a great community where we all felt comfortable sharing our experiences and giving moral support.

Since completing her student teaching at the East Brunswick Middle School during Fall 2020, Marisa has been working as a Special Education case manager at a charter school in Washington DC. She is also enrolled in a full-time remote MAT program with NYU.
