Ms. Kirsh's Class


Brianna Kirsh is so excited to be starting her 6th year at Janney! She’s had quite the journey at Janney starting off as a Student Teacher, and then moving into a Partner Teacher role and Interventionist, and this will be her 3rd year in 2nd grade. Janney is such an amazing community of learners, faculty/staff, and families that she feels lucky to be a part of.  When she is not at Janney, Brianna is busy learning too, as she continues working on her masters at George Mason University for a degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Literacy Leadership.  When she is not busy doing all this amazing work, she loves to cook and explore new recipes.  Brianna also enjoy trying new restaurants around the city with friends and walking around the city of a beautiful day.  She couldn’t be more excited about this school year and looks forward to greeting Janney families old and new!

Lucy Marincel is excited to begin her third year at Janney as a member of the second grade team! She will work along side Ms. Kirsh  to support all of the great learning of second grade.  She studied at Macalester College and Hamline University, and is currently working on her masters in ESL education. Ms. Marincel is from Minnesota and loves the winter time! When she is not teaching or thinking about teaching, she loves to read, to knit anything that can be a made out of square, and to spend time with her cat, Wallace.  She is looking forward to getting to know all of the K-2 families!
