Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor of Social Work K-6 Elementary Education
My name is Marissa Greenfield, and I am a 1st grade teacher here at Coastal Elementary. I was born in New York but grew up in New Jersey. I received my Bachelor of Social Work degree from Ramapo College of New Jersey in 2015. During that time, I worked with children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorders. I continued my education and went on to receive my K-6 Elementary Education certificate and became licensed to teach in New Jersey and North Carolina.
My educational journey began in 2017 when I moved to North Carolina and became a Kindergarten teacher assistant at Bradley Creek Elementary in Wilmington. In 2018, I started teaching Kindergarten at Dixon Elementary and then moved up to first grade the following year. I am so excited to be teaching first grade here at Coastal! I am eager to get to know my students and families and work together to make it a wonderful year.
Outside of school I enjoy going to the beach, woodworking, reading a good book, traveling and spending time with family and friends.
