Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Marian Popa
My name is Marian Popa and I am originally from Romania. This is my 6th year in Florence One District, my 2nd at Wilson High School but my 16th year of working as a resource teacher. I finished my BA degree in Special Education in 2004 and my Master's Degree in Human Resources in 2014. I speak three languages and I am highly qualified in middle school math. I was the adviser for the Middle School Academy Challenge team for a total of 8 years and the boy's soccer coach for over 5 years.
I am committed to helping every student learn in my class. I believe it is important for families and schools to work together in sharing 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.
