Teachers Of Marvelwood

By Pterodactyl Times Co-Editors Angelina Fardo '23 and Sydney Mims '24

The editors of the Pterodactyl Times asked faculty members Mrs. Singo, Learning Support Department Chair, and Mr. Maizel, Athletic Director, some general questions. Why did we decide to interview them? Well, because sometimes we don’t always appreciate our teachers’ hard work, their lesson plans, or even their dedication to work here. Below are the questions and their answers. 

How long have you been at Marvelwood?

Mrs. Singco: “I have been with Marvelwood for 7 years” 

What do you teach? 

Mr. Maizel: “Director of Athletics.  Also work in institutional advancement, admission, and development.”

What is your favorite subject to teach? 

Mrs. Singco: “Of all the subjects we do, I really like English.”

What is your favorite thing about being a teacher at Marvelwood? 

Mr. Maizel: “I love the resilience of the kids here.”

Did you always want to be a teacher why or why not?

Mrs. Singco: “I was a social worker for many years and that is sort of a teacher, too; I also have a degree in early childhood education and thought these two went together well.”
