Mr. James Marzan
My name is Mr. Marzan and this will be my sixth year teaching at Los Medanos Elementary. Second grade will be a year filled with joy, respect, and hard work!
I was raised and schooled my whole life in the Bay Area. After I graduated high school, I went to San Jose State University for my undergraduate degree in Economics. I then followed my dream to live in a foreign country, and I moved to Japan for four years. I taught English in Hiroshima to elementary and middle school students. With the move to Japan, I realized that teaching was my calling. I moved back home to the Bay Area and got my Masters in Teaching at Saint Mary’s College in Moraga, California.
Teaching is my passion, and I can’t wait to spend the year learning and growing with all of you! We are all learners in Room P3 and this year's motto is “Success and Nothing Less!” Let’s have a great year, and remember, Los Medanos is a place “Where we expect the best!”
*With Covid-19 affecting school, we are implementing Remote Learning. Second Grade will be using Google Sites for assignments, updates, and schedules.

If you have a question, please don't hesitate to ask through email or Classdojo.
