Museums With Marisa spent a full week teaching "Mummies and More" to the entire 6th grade student population of The Scarsdale Middle School in Scarsdale, NY. Marisa became the enrichment social studies teacher for all 450 students.
The school was so thrilled with the presentations that they created this slide show to send to their parents, families, board member and local community.

“A once-in-a-classroom experience that brought my textbook to life – she’s a gem!”
"My students absolutely LOVED the program on Tuesday. I thought it was absolutely age appropriate for my second graders, and they loved Marisa's discussion with pictures and the hands-on experience. My students were also talking about her artifacts for the rest of the day! I will send over my photos in a separate email.

I just want you to know how much we enjoyed our workshops at the Westchester Italian Cultural Center yesterday. Our students, our teachers and I all had a great time. It was both fun and interesting. I personally loved the Ancient Rome workshop, and thought Marisa did a great job. I was as fascinated as the first students were by her presentation and her knowledge. Her authentic artifacts were a big hit! It practically defies the senses to know that we were seeing and handling objects that were 3,000 years old. It boggles the mind. Marisa is also so knowledgeable and so patient, especially while allowing the students to handle the artifacts. Please keep me posted on any new workshops or programs that you think our students might be interested in. We would love to come back again.
Please thank Cathy and Marisa for us and let them know how much we enjoyed the day. And thank you, Helen, for all your work in getting the day scheduled and organized. I know how much goes on "behind the scenes" and want you to know how much I personally appreciate all you did to make the day a great one for us. I look forward to seeing you again at another program.

"We will absolutely meet at The Met one day and hopefully also send some friends your way! You are delightful, knowledgeable and so friendly...Thank you so very much for your kindness and astute ability to educate and entertain all at once!"

“I have been to the Met many times but have never felt so intrigued by what lies behind the glass cases.”
What a GREAT DAY! Thanks so much for bringing your energy, knowledge, passion and your artifacts to our school today. We truly enjoyed having you join us for the day and your Discovering Ancient Rome! workshop was a big hit, as you saw and heard! I'm so glad that the after care and the other teachers plan to invite you back in the fall. I plan to do the same."
"Your lecture was everything we could have hoped for: interesting, engaging, and kept us wondering what was coming next. We all wanted more, and touching the ancient artifacts was extremely special."
“Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious – all ages are mesmerized by both her presentation style and vast and seemingly unending wealth of detailed knowledge.”
"Thank You!! Your Museum tour was fantastic, in fact too short for me. My daughter, who at first did not want to visit a "dusty old museum," ended up not wanting to leave, loving the experience, and wants to return with you."
