Marianne has worked in education for more than thirty years. Though she has taught English at the college level, for most of her career she has taught high school English and served as Assistant Head at a college prep school in Santa Cruz, California. She has a particular interest in arts education and she holds a Master’s degree in English Literature with an emphasis in poetry. She has also published several poems. Marianne infuses her passion for education into a nonprofit organization that she and her husband founded in 2008. Every summer they lead volunteers to the same remote village in rural East Africa in order to work alongside its people to build and renovate schools, provide clean water, and improve health care.
