Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, “Ms. Marilyn” has called Nashville home for nearly a decade. Her career at Akiva began as an occasional volunteer in the front office and quickly bloomed into a regular position assisting teachers. Marilyn has a passion for sharing her love of life, learning, and fun. In addition to her regular duties, Marilyn runs the after school activities Bricks and Blocks Club and Craft Club. When not at school, she enjoys reading, crafts, games, cooking, and spending time with her husband Mike and their 15 pound black cat, Gus. She recently completed a crash course in Hebrew to better serve the Akiva community. Shalom, y’all!
