First Name:

The Ortiz-Gracey of Puerto Rico"

Updated April 7, 2004

About Our Family Research

My name is Marisol Ortiz-Gracey. I am a student at Baker College in the undergraduate education program. I was born in Salinas, Puerto Rico. Currently, I am employed by the School District of the City of Pontiac at Madison Middle School as a bilingual special education paraprofessional. In addition to the elementary certification in Social Studies, I also plan to have an endorsement in Early Childhood education.
I have three children, a son, age sixteen, (16), a daughter, age thirteen, (13) and a daughter, age eight, (8). They attend the Rochester Public Schools and they keep me busy. In my leisure time, I love to cook, clean and shop. I consider myself to be an organized, patient person with a good sense of humor. My family sees me as being very attentive to their needs as well as those of others.
I have spent my life pursuing a career that will be interesting and most gratifying. I have the desire to help students who are considered at-risk. My aspiration in becoming a teacher is to educate the total child. I want my classroom to nurture a change that is good for the child as a whole, not only in school but in life as well. As a person who is bilingual, I see the need to have an increase presence of bilingual teachers and administrators in the school. This presence will provide a balanced delivery of the curriculum in which all children will learn, be nurtured and grow.
