About Our Director
My name is Marissa Peña, and I am thrilled to return to AMCHS for another fantastic season with the Tiger Forensics Speech & Debate Team. As a former high school speech geek, I found my place in forensics, and it is my greatest desire that students would not only find their voices within this organization, but that they would find a home & a family where they feel welcomed to share their stories, thoughts, and ideas.
When I'm not busy traveling the state of Texas with my students, I love spending time with my family, cooking (and eating) Mexican food, watching 90s romcoms on Netflix, writing, and cheering on the San Antonio Spurs on their Race for Seis. I am so excited to serve as the director & coach of this amazing program for the 2017-2018 season, and I cannot wait to see what the year has in store for us!
Here's to an incredible year!
