Teacher Biography 

cool Welcome to Second Grade! cool

 Mrs. Marin

Hello! My name is Mrs. Beth Ann Marin.

I am excited to begin my second year at St. A's as the Second Grade teacher!  I was born, raised, and currently reside in Philadelphia with my husband. 

I am a proud alumna of Saint Hubert High School, Chestnut Hill College, and Holy Family University.

I want to ignite a love for learning and discovery in all of my students and I feel blessed to be a part of their journey. I believe respect, responsibility, and kindness are the foundations upon which learning is built and I encourage my students to believe in their own ability to grow and achieve.

Some of my favorite things…

Movies: The Goonies

Television: Fixer Upper

Bands: The Cure

Foods: Strawberries

Color: Green

Season: Fall

Flower: Tulips

Hobbies: Traveling, Hiking, Gardening, Reading, Photography, Visiting Art Museums, Attending Concerts
