Maria is a 5th grade teacher at Bailey Elementary in Dublin, Ohio. She lives in Ostrander with her husband Tom, and is the proud mother of Anna, a senior at Bowling Green State University, and Marcus, a freshman at Otterbein in Westerville. Maria believes that “Wonderopolis allows for students of all ages, along with their families, to begin to wonder every day.” She has found through her experiences in the classroom, if she opens the door to WONDER, students will continue conversations throughout the school day, at home, as well as extend their learning through further research.
