Felice Marcus is a mainstream schoolteacher at the Indian Pines Elementary School. She has tremendous passion as shown through her teaching experience for more than 25 years! Her dedication to making sure other deaf children got an education is amazing given that Felice herself grew up in public schools with little accommodations and no access to sign language.

She previously taught at The Learning Center and the New York School for the Deaf, and took on her current position as a K-2 teacher at a public school when she needed to move to south Florida to take care of her mother.
