First Grade-Ejups | Cole Academy

1st Grade

Ms. Ejups & Ms. Synder 

Meet the Teachers

Welcome to First Grade! My name is Marisa Ejups and I am one of the first grade teachers here at Cole Academy East. I am a graduate of Michigan State University with a degree in elementary education and a focus in Language Arts. I am so excited to see where this journey takes me.


Outside of the classroom I love spending time with friends and family, playing volleyball and am very involved in the Latvian community. 

"Becoming a teacher is something I've dreamed of since a very young age. Having the opportunity to positively impact the lives of students and develop meaningful relationships with each and every one of them is so special to me. I believe that education is the gateway to so many opportunities and I want to support students as they grow into successful lifelong learners."
