Marissa DiMartino has been at World Academy since July of 2019. She is a graduate of Rivier University where she received a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. Marissa is also a graduate of New Hampshire Technical Institute receiving an Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education.
Marissa was born and raised in Nashua, New Hampshire. She loves everything about New England and its seasons, her favorite being Fall. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with loved ones, hiking, going to the beach, cooking and baking delicious desserts.
Marissa believes that no two children are the same. Therefore, every child should be given the chance to learn and participate as an individual, who is a part of a safe and friendly classroom community. "As an educator, I wish to provide an encouraging learning environment that fosters each child’s development, focusing on the whole child. I believe that children learn best when they have the opportunity to explore through developmentally appropriate, hands-on, real-world experiences." Marissa’s favorite part of teaching is watching children have "ah-ha" moments as they make new discoveries and uncover their love of learning.
