She feels honored to encourage and support parents and their children during these precious first years in this unique and wonderful program. Parents learn parenting techniques and children learn important life skills that lay the foundation for future educational and social/emotional success in school and interpersonal relationships. “Miss Lisa” and her own son went through the program and made wonderful memories and lifelong friendships. “Miss Lisa” has a Bachelor’s in Communications and had a successful career in Marketing before returning to school to obtain her Professional Clear Teaching Credential. Before teaching Parent Ed, Ms. Marcinko taught elementary school in Anaheim.
