Meet Marisa!

Deep Space Sparkle welcomes Marisa Gebert

I’m so excited for you to meet Marisa Gebert, the newest member of the growing Deep Space Sparkle team.

I reached out to my readers to find the perfect person to help me incorporate Common Core Standards as well as the National Core Art Standards into my lesson plans.

We had close to 500 applicants. It was wonderful reading the emails and how Deep Space Sparkle has impacted your art curriculum. There were far more qualified people than I expected but I reviewed each one carefully. Many were asked to submit sample lesson plans and they were all amazing.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to do so.

I connected with Marisa right off the bat.  I was thrilled she was able to devote some of her time to helping me ready my lesson plans for my new Members Club that will be launching in August.

Here’s a note from Marisa….

My name is Marisa Gebert, and I am so excited to be part of the DSS team!

I live in Georgia with my husband, Andy and our sweet German Shepherd, Harley. We are expecting our newest addition next month… our first baby! We could not be more thrilled. I am a K-8 Art Teacher at St. Catherine of Siena Catholic School in Kennesaw, and Andy is active duty in the Army. We have been married for 5 years and have lived in 4 states.

I have been blessed enough to work in Oklahoma, North Carolina, and now Georgia doing what I love most… teaching art to children. Having lived and taught in different states, I am very familiar with incorporating visual art standards as well as Common Core standards to my own lesson plans. I understand how important collaboration with classroom teachers is, and I’ve been able to show administration and co-workers how art class can enhance or build upon what students are doing in the classroom in a creative and expressive manner.

I have been using DSS lessons since I started teaching, and they truly have made teaching art even more enjoyable and fun. I am so excited to contribute to this wonderful program. 

I hope you join me by welcoming Marisa to the DSS family!


The Members Club is designed to save you time and effort by offering an artist of the month art curriculum, a bank of DSS lesson plans (standards included!), support & encouragement in the forum and live video teacher trainings each month.

    What was her favorite color? That was what you asked folks to put in the subject line.

      Haha. Don’t think I remember. Can you guess why we asked that question?
