Anna Maritz is the 7th and 8th Grade US History teacher here at Aurum Prep. Before moving to Oakland, Anna grew up in a small ski-town in Colorado, where she developed a love for all things outdoors. Anna graduated from Princeton University with a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies and a credential for Secondary Education in Social Studies. Anna sees teaching as an act of social justice, and has been involved in education in a range of forms since high school--from tutoring younger students as a student herself to teaching small classes in local prisons throughout college. More formally, Anna has experience teaching both English and US History in middle and high school. In her spare time, Anna enjoys nature and being outside, cooking and eating, making art and teaching and doing yoga.
