Mrs. Marissa Oprandy
My name is Marissa Oprandy, I am the Art Teacher at MXMS. In 2016 I earned a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Art Studio and Secondary Education from William Paterson University.
I am originally from New Jersey and have been living in North Carolina for 5 years and I love it! I have been married to my husband Steve for 5 years and we have a dog: Lily (Sheltie) and 3 cats: Luna, Stella, and Archer! Some of my favorite things include Mellow Mushroom Pizza, Starbucks, chocolate, cooking/baking, and Netflix.
As an artist I have worked with many mediums including acrylic paint, oil paint, pencil, charcoal, and watercolors. My favorite medium is charcoal because you create a lot of contrast but it's challenging to keep your paper clean. I have a realistic approach to creating art and my favorite artist is Chuck Close.

Johnston County Public Schools is always striving to provide students and families with exemplary service. In most cases, school bus transportation is essential for many students to access a quality education. In order to meet our daily goal, it is necessary to implement change that enhances and improves our overall operation. As we prepare for the 2022-2023 school year, JCPS Transportation Services and School Nutrition will be hosting a Summer Information Fair at each high school.
