INSTRUCTOR BIO: MS. MARISSA

I began dancing at age 11 at North Jefferson Academy of Dance. NJAD is one of my favorite places. When I walk in, it feels like home.

I am married to my wonderful husband, Nathan, and we have two sons, Collin and Everett. I have my Bachelors degree in both Elementary and Special Education K-6, and my Masters degree in Special Education K-6. I am an Elementary Special Education teacher at Burkett Center in Jefferson County.

After taking a few years off to start a family, I am eager to return for my 12th season teaching at NJAD. I am excited about this dance year – I absolutely love teaching my precious ballerinas!
