Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Marian Popa
My name is Marian Popa, this is my fifth year in FSD1 but I have been a resource teacher for over 16 years. I finished my BA degree in Special Education in 2004 and my Master's Degree in Human Resources in 2014. I came to the US in 2007 as a teacher in Aiken County; I worked for 2 years as a high school resource and 14 years as a middle school resource teacher. I speak three languages and I am highly qualified in middle school math.
I am committed to 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 students and I will do all that I can to help every child achieve those expectations.
My motto in life is very simple: "Without commitment, you will never start, but without consistency, you will never finish." I believe that when you put together passion, consistency, and hard work, amazing things can come true.
