Marisa Del Pino
Marisa always knew she wanted to become a teacher, so from Berkeley she moved back to Southern California and immediately entered the Teacher Education Program at UCLA’s Graduate School of Education where she earned a Masters in Education and Multiple and Single Subject Credentials.
After two years of teaching in South Los Angeles, a surprising twist of fate brought Marisa back to the Magnet and what she refers to as her “dream job.” However, the Magnet is much more than a job. It is a home where she grew up and found her future husband. It is a family where she feels fortunate to work alongside dedicated colleagues and passionate students. And most importantly, it is a learning community that allows her to experience the transformative power of education on a daily basis.
