Hi, my name is Marisa Lazar and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I am excited to be returning to Jahn as a Special Education Classroom Assistant. I moved to Chicago in the fall of 2018, after graduating cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts from American University. Before coming to Jahn as a SECA, I worked briefly for CPS as a Substitute Teacher. I love working with children and am passionate about their creativity and social-emotional learning. Originally from Boston, Massachusetts, I enjoy spending time there in the summer visiting my family and teaching creative writing and theatre classes for young people at the summer camp I once attended. In my free time, I’m an avid reader and enjoy taking in art of all forms, especially live theatre!
