Member At Large
I am Marie Ocean. I was born and raised in Haiti. In 1995, I migrated to the United States of America. However, I have never been detached from my motherland. From the time that I arrived, I enrolled at Miami Edison Sr. High School and 3 years later I graduated. Upon graduation, I attended Miami Dade College (MDC) majored in Business Administration. After 2 years at MDC, I transferred to Florida International University (FIU) where I obtained a bachelor’s degree in business administration. In pursuit of higher education, I attended Nova Southeastern University from which, in 2015, I completed a master’s in business administration (MBA). Most importantly, I am a child of God, a mother, and a very proud educator working for Miami Dade County Public Schools system.
Prior to becoming a teacher, I have worked in other capacities, such as clerical and paraprofessional within the Miami Dade Public School system. In addition to being a teacher, I am also the PD Liaison at my school location as well as an Alternate Steward at North Miami Adult Center; while serving as an FEA Delegate. During the 2017-2018 School Year, I was honored to be voted “Rookie Teacher” of the year. To top it all, I am the founder and owner of “The Ultimate Ocean”.
My mission is to help those who can’t help themselves by demonstrating the reality on what General Colin Powell said: “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure”.
