Tracey Maranto, M.Ed.
ENGLISH I and II
Hello, and welcome to Mandeville High School.
My name is Tracey Maranto. I am entering my 19th year of teaching English, all in St. Tammany Parish and 18.5 years at Mandeville High. In that time, I have taught English I, II, III, IV, and Yearbook. Mainly, I have dedicated my teaching career to students with learning disabilities or difficulties with reading and written expression. I also have a daughter in the 10th grade at MHS.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in English (Pre-Law) and a minor in History from Southeastern Louisiana University. I also earned my teaching certification a year later from SLU. In December of 2005, I finished my Master of Education degree in Special Education. I continue to learn about my curriculum, current policies, and teaching practices through workshops , inservices, and teacher development during summer months.
My teaching philosophy could be summarized by the belief that all students can be motivated given the right atmosphere, opportunity, and encouragement.
