Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Marian Popa
My name is Marian Popa, I am a new teacher to FSD1 but I have been a resource teacher for over 12 years. I finished my BA degree in Special Education in 2004 and my Master Degree in Human Resources in 2014. I came in the US in 2007 as a teacher in Aiken County; I worked for 2 years as a high school resource and 10 years as a middle school resource teacher. I speak three languages and I am highly qualified in middle school math.
I am committed in helping every student learn in my class. I believe it is important for families and schools to work together and share responsibility for student success. I have high expectations for all my student and I will do all that I can to help every child achieve those expectations.
My motto in life is very simple: "The expert in anything was once a beginner" so nothing is impossible for the one is willing to try. Many things were thought to be impossible until someone did them. I strongly believe that when you put together passion, consistency and hard work, amazing things can come true.
