Maritsa Alger, Interim Principal
Maritsa Alger has over 30 years of experience in education and served half of that time as a principal and leader for Norfolk’s Lafayette and Lakewood community. Mrs. Alger is certified in Educational Administration and has studied and graduated from Old Dominion University, Hampton University and New York University.
Maritsa grew up serving the Lord and was involved with youth formation in her church. She taught Bible Studies to children during her early years as a teacher, and currently serves her church as a Eucharistic Minister. Maritsa has also engaged in community service, especially in areas impacting the homeless population.
Maritsa’s life verse is Matthew 20:16 “… the last shall be first, and the first last; for many be called, but few chosen.” It reminds her that the work of educating all children is reserved for those who are willing to serve with deep humility, leadership, and the strength to empower each and every child with faith and love.
Maritsa, and her husband, Tim have two children and a granddaughter that they absolutely adore.
