Welcome!

My name is Marisa Delci and I am a product of CUSD. I grew up in Chandler on 5 acres right behind Weinberg! My husband, 3 kids and I are building a new home on one of those acres and I will soon be able to walk to work. I have been teaching since 1993 and I am so thrilled to continue my teaching adventure as a part of the WGA family.I love reading, traveling, baking & cooking. I especially love exploring foods from other cultures. I am excited to meet my new second grade class and I look forward to meeting not only my students’ families, but all of the WGA families. I know that all together we are going to make WGA a place of learning, friendships, and family. I am also excited to learn from the experience and skills of my new peers and my hope is that with my experiences I will be a positive addition to the team.

My Education and Professional Background

Graduating in 1993 from the University of Arizona earning my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary eEducation with a Bilingual Endorsement. I taught for 3 years in the bilingual (Spanish) classroom in both 3rd and 6th grades before moving to DC to work for Oklahoma State University, from 1996 - 2000. OSU had a long-running education contract with NASA. As an Aerospace Education Specialist I traveled around the country helping schools & teachers implement NASA Science, Math and Technology lessons. I have attended and presented at many education conventions including NSTA, NCTM, and ITEA. While working for OSU, I earned my Master of Science in 1999. Since 2000 I have been a proud member of the CUSD family, beginning at Knox teaching 5th, 3rd, and 2nd grades as well as intermediate ELL. In 2008 I earned a Reading Endorsement from NAU. Most recently I have been the Media/Reading Specialist at Bologna Elementary. I am looking forward to pursuing my Gifted Endorsement.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that all children can learn when provided with a challenging and supportive learning environment. An environment where they can be engaged in their learning, take risks, and even fail, but get up and try again. A teacher’s role is to recognize their strengths and potential, guide with support and encouragement so that the potential is reached and so the students can feel accomplished in their success. My commitment is that I will treat all of my students fairly and with respect. Our classroom will be a safe, encouraging and inviting environment where students are able to make mistakes and learn from them, and where families connect themselves too, to their child’s learning experiences.
