Ms. Marissa Parker was born and raised in San Jose, CA. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Child Development and is in the process of earning her Master’s Degree in Education with an emphasis in Technology.
She began her career at Montessori School of Silicon Valley in 2018. After just a short time she gained a deep interest in the Montessori philosophy and began taking classes at the Montessori Teacher Education Center to help further her knowledge of the Montessori Method.
After being the Lead Guide in our Sycamore Primary community, she was promoted to the Enrollment Coordinator in 2019 and shortly following that she transitioned into the Head of School role in January of 2020. Ms. Marissa is dedicated to making sure every family has a positive experience at the school. Her favorite part about working at Main Street Montessori is being able to engage with the parents and hear all the wonderful stories of how their children are growing and developing, academically and socially. You can truly see her heart poured into the school upon your first step in the doors.
For 9 years prior to being at MSOSV, she worked with children from ages 6 months to 12 years in various settings, including childcare, elementary schools and community centers.
Ms. Marissa loves being an educator and part of the school community. She is inspired every day to leave a positive impact on each and every family she encounters. Her love for education stems from working with children hands on, allowing her to make a difference in the lives of her students and shape the world around them. She believes in investing in the children in her community and giving them the tools they need to reach their highest potential.
In Ms. Marissa’s spare time she likes to travel, use her creative brain and spend time with her husband and dogs.
