Previously taught at Winston Elementary School.


Hi! My name is Marissa Minnis. This year I will be starting my fourth year as a teacher. I spent the first three years of my teaching career at Winston Elementary School in Winston, MO. During my time at Winston, I taught one year of 2nd grade and two years of Kindergarten. I attended Chillicothe High School and went on to receive my B.S. in Education with additional certification in Early Childhood Education from Missouri Western State University. Two years ago, I married the love of my life, Gregg. Our family consists of two pets, a dog named Zoey and our cat named Dash. My husband and I reside in Saint Joseph, MO, but I am originally from the small town of Chula, MO. I love the people and atmosphere of small towns and am excited to being joining the Rushville team! As far back as I can remember, I always loved playing school and my dream was to become a teacher. It is an awesome feeling to be living my dream!
When I am not at school, I love to have fun and laugh. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. My husband and I are avid movie watchers and have quite the collection. This summer, I started the Reading Masters Program through Northwest Missouri State University. I am very excited about going back to school and furthering my education.
