About Ms. Marissa Montero...
Position: Read180 Teacher
Welcome to Andersen Junior High School! I am excited to be your student’s Read180 teacher this year!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from Northwestern University in 2013 with a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology/Archaeology. I started working at Andersen Junior High as a paraeducator in 2015. I worked in a variety of classrooms as a paraeducator, but the past few years I mainly worked with Read180. I decided to put this experience to good use in my own classroom this year. I am also furthering my education this year with a Teacher in Residence program at Rio Salado.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe every student can learn and succeed, they just need the right resources and motivation to do so.
The Choice is Yours! Why Choose Andersen Junior High?
