Name: Marisa Mae Fleck

Educational Background: Bachelors of Science in University Studies
Biography: I am 23 years old and I was born and raised in Norman, Oklahoma. I have an older brother and two amazing parents who have been together for 33 years. I have been throwing Javelin and Shot Put on the UTA Track and Field Team for 3 years. Ever since I was in 7th grade I have had a passion for special needs children so I am so excited to be accepted into the project MMS program and eventually do what I love for the rest of my life.
Quote: “What I am looking forward to learning while in Project MMS is working with teachers who are experts in special education which means I can grow as a future educator and working with other students who share the same passion I do when it comes to special needs children.”
