Hello Hello! My name is Marissa Lopez. I was born and raised in Chattanooga, but teaching at Loftis has been my first experience with this edge of the county! I graduated from Tyner Academy then continued my education at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher, but I considered a couple of different age ranges during my time at UTC. At first I considered high school then bounced down to elementary education but nothing felt quite right. I finally landed at the middle grades course work and felt like I found my home. I love the personalities and struggles that students in the middle grades face because of the same things I experienced at their age. I taught 7th grade math for the first 5 years of my career but I'm loving my experience of teaching math and science to 6th graders here at Loftis. 


In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a niece who has stolen my heart and I'm pretty sure I'm the best aunt in the world. I'm sure she'd agree. She is 2 I can't believe how quickly time flies!


I am excited to work with and get to know everyone this school year!
