Welcome to the wonderful world of first grade! My name is Marissa Ferry and I am thrilled to be your child’s first grade teacher for the 2019-2020 school year. This will be my 8th year at Seldens Landing. I am originally from Murrysville, Pennsylvania, which is about 15 miles east of Pittsburgh. I graduated from The Pennsylvania State University (Go Nittany Lions!) with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary and Kindergarten Education and a minor in Special Education. In 2017, I received my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a Concentration in Literacy Leadership for Diverse Readers from George Mason University. When I am not teaching, I enjoy walking, reading, listening to music, shopping, and spending time with my friends and family.
