Marsha Pollack, Secondary School Educator at Solomon Schecter School of Queens, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of teaching.
Although she wanted to be a psychologist for many years, having a passion for working with children and a mother who encouraged the field of teaching inspired Ms. Pollack to become an educator. Ms. Pollack began her career in academia as a student at Brooklyn College, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in 1968. She pursued further study at the university and obtained a Master of Science in 1973 before graduating from Queens College in 2003 with a specialist diploma in administration and supervision. Certified by the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards, Ms. Pollack worked as a teacher for the New York City Department of Education from 1968 to 2002, when she went on to spend a year as an assistant principal in Queens, New York. Remaining with the city department, she worked as a teacher, coach, and staff developer from 2003 to 2006. Currently, Ms. Pollack finds success as a teacher at the Solomon Schecter School of Queens.
Attributing her success to loving what she does, Ms. Pollack most looks forward to when her students return and tell her what they’ve done since school. Through her career, she has dedicated her free time to the American Federation of Teachers, the National Council of Teachers of English, the International Literacy Association, and Phi Delta Kappa. In future years, Ms. Pollack hopes to return to school herself and earn a doctorate. In recognition of her achievements, she was named a CAL Grantee by Chase Manhattan and has been featured in the seventh edition of Who’s Who in American Education, as well as multiple editions of Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who of American Women, and Who’s Who in America.
