Mr. Joel Marinan
My name is Joel Marinan and I have been teaching Senior Kindergarten for the Wauwatosa School District since 1998. I grew up in the Milwaukee area where I attended Marquette University High School. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education from Cardinal Stritch University. I received my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from National-Louis University. In 2014, I was awarded the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation Fellowship. I enjoy teaching because I can exercise my creativity and help my students reach their learning goals. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, seeing movies, cooking, volunteering for the Miss Wisconsin Organization and taking in local and regional theatre.
