Marissa Shaw lived just north of Seattle, Washington her whole life until she moved to Portland, Oregon where she completed a Bachelor of Science degree in both Secondary Education and Spanish as well as gained endorsements in Middle School Mathematics and Special Education. She has been in classrooms from 4th grade all the way to high school. This will be Marissa’s third year teaching and has loved every moment at SMS. Marissa is the 6th grade homeroom teacher and is teaching both science and math this year. In her free time she likes to be outside biking, hiking or swimming, spend time with her family, friends and dog, and she loves nothing more than when the sunshine peeks out.
