My name is Marie Danysh. I am the child of immigrant parents. I was born in Virginia and was raised in Houston, TX. I attended Southwest Texas State University with a degree in Sociology. I used my degree to work with at-risk youth at Gary Job Corps in San Marcos. I worked as a counselor and college coordinator.
After 9 ½ years with Job Corps, I entered the public education field as a Special Education teacher. Currently, I work with high school aged students in San Antonio, TX.
I am a wife and mother of 2 girls. I am an advocate for my students and for at-risk youth.
