About Me
My name is Karisa Marcy and I am the Reading Specialist for Piney Branch. I taught 2nd, 4th, and 5th grades before I became a reading specialist in the 2008-2009 school year. 
I graduated in 2002 from Western Connecticut State University with a dual degree in Elementary Education and History. I received my Master of Education Degree in Curriculum and Instruction and my Education Specialist degree in Reading from the University of Virginia. I also attained National Board Certification in 2007 as a Generalist-Middle Childhood and was a Reading Recovery teacher from 2012-2019.
I spend half my day providing intervention in Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade and the other half working with classroom teachers.
I live in Gainesville with my husband, son, and daughter. In my free time, I love to read, bake, and exercise.
