Maurissa Koide, Principal

  • I was born and raised in this community and a student of the Mt. Pleasant Elementary School District.  I attended Fred Marten Elementary and August Boeger Middle School. At my 8th grade promotion, I was honored with the Student of the Year award.  I went off to get my undergraduate degree at Columbia University in New York City.  Returning home, I earned two Masters Degrees in Public Health from SFSU and Educational Leadership from Santa Clara Univeristy.  I started my teaching career in our District at August Boeger, then became the Lead Visual & Performing Arts Teacher at Ida Jew Academies followed by serving as the Student Advisor at August Boeger.  This is my first year as Principal and I look forward to a great year serving our families and students.
