Hi! My name is Marisa Menezes. I was born and raised here in Hanford, California. I attended Monroe School, Woodrow Wilson Jr. High School, and Hanford East Campus High School. After I graduated high school, I attended College of the Sequoia's and received my AA degree. I then moved to Fresno and attended Fresno State University. I earned my BA and Multiple Subject Clear Credential with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education.
This is my nineteenth year as a teacher. This is my 5th year working for the Pioneer Elementary School District. Throughout the years, I have taught kindergarten, third, and fourth grade and now second grade. I enjoy every moment with my students. It is amazing to watch them learn and grow!
While I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my children. I also enjoy working out, watching my children play sports, spending quality time with good friends, and shopping!
I am looking forward to a fun-filled school year with my class! Teaching is not only a job, but rather, a passion of mine. It is important that my students and their parents know that I am here for guidance and assistance whenever necessary. I strive to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable.
