Hello, my name is Marissa Devlin. I am a TEFL-certified teacher and originally from Milton, Massachusetts, a small town outside of Boston. I have taught in many different settings; most recently, I was teaching a children’s class as part of a literacy program in Boston. There I taught children to read and write as well as assisted with homework assignments and provided fun, educational activities for the children every day. Additionally, I hold a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from McGill University in Canada. I focused my degree in early childhood and adolescent development. I have worked with children throughout my life; it is a rewarding experience to see them grow over the course of a year. In my classroom, I implement a variety of techniques aimed at creating a healthy, cooperative learning environment in which students learn from me, but also share their knowledge and experiences with each other. I am very excited to meet and teach all of the wonderful kids at DEP!

Hello! My name is Victoria Fogel!
I am from a small town called Butler that is about an hour away from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
I moved to Korea in February, 2020, and I worked in Seoul during my first year here in Korea.
I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in December, 2018, with a Bachelors in Psychology. Before coming to Korea, I taught summer programs at the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium, and that is where I found my love and enthusiasm for teaching. While I was there, I worked with children aged 4 to 12 years old. In Korea, I have experience teaching pre-school, kindergarten, and elementary age students.
I love to sing along with the kids and play games in the classroom. I want my students to know that learning can be both fun and rewarding! I am so excited to meet my new students this year, and I am excited to see how they will grow over the year.
It would be an honor to work with everyone at work and with the children!
