Ms. Marlayna Gruman

Hello families and students! This is currently my 3rd year teaching Special Education at Wauwatosa East High School, and 2nd year as the Varsity Raidertete Dance Team Coach. I am proud to be part of the Wauwatosa East Team.  I graduated from the University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire in May of 2015 with a double major in Special Education- Learning Disabilities (K-12th grade) and Regular Education (1st- 8th grade). I carry a strong belief that all students are capable of reaching their highest potential if instruction is presented to each individual student in the way he or she learns best and with proper supports put into place. In my spare time, I enjoy coaching dance, swimming, cooking, traveling, jewelry making, thrift store shopping, and cheering on my favorite sports teams (Packers, Brewers, Bucks, and ASU).

Fun Facts:

I started dancing when I was three years old- Tap dancing and Lyrical is my favorite style! 

I went to high school at Kettle Moraine High School. 

I have a bunny named Piper.

I have visited 16 out of 30 MLB baseball parks thus far.
