About the Teacher

Hello! My name is Marissa Yerton and I am a first grade teacher at MES.
I graduated from USC in May of 2020 with a degree in Early Childhood Education, and this is my second year of teaching.
I'm originally from New Jersey but I grew up in Pennsylvania, not too far outside of Philadelphia. Growing up, I always wanted to move to South Carolina!
One of most important things to me as a teacher is having a strong community in my classroom. I believe that building relationships & making connections with my students is critical to being able to help them grow academically, socially, and emotionally.
