Elyse Martin - Lead Teacher - 4th Grade Teacher
Elyse is thrilled to teach at CWC Mar Vista as a Lead Teacher. She is originally from Thousand Oaks, CA. She attended the University of San Francisco where she earned a BA in Media Studies. After college she moved to Los Angeles to perform with local theatre groups such as The Groundlings. While performing and working in non-profit fundraising, she realized her true passion was working with children. She decided to pursue a teaching credential at California State University, Northridge. Elyse has taught both 4th and 5th grade at Endeavor College Prep in Los Angeles, where she worked with students to promote literacy through drama. Elyse lives in Marina Del Rey with her Fiancé and their two cats “Dude” and “Moon”. When she is not teaching, she enjoys cycling, yoga, surfing, reading, and traveling.
