About Mrs. Peña

 Mrs. Pena
Hello Everyone!!
I am so excited to be able to welcome all of our wonderful Discovery Explorers to our beautiful library. It is my favorite place on campus and I hope it will become yours too!  Please make sure to come visit me often! You know I love to see you all!!

For those of you who do not know me yet, my name is Marion Peña. I have been employed at Discovery Elementary since 2016 and worked as an Instructional Aide in the classroom prior to working in the library. I was honored last year to be able to transfer to the library and become your new Library Media Technician. It is honestly a dream come true for me and I absolutely love it! I am originally from the Netherlands and moved to San Diego in 1991 to go to school. I speak Dutch and English (of course) but also studied Spanish, French and German for many years. I am married with two boys, ages 18 and 19. My husband teaches Spanish at Mission Hills High School. (Go Grizzlies!) I love reading (of course), gardening, traveling, coloring AND learning! I am currently studying Library and Information Technology at Palomar College and plan to graduate after the Spring 2023. My goal is to always create a fun and safe place for students to spend some time. Students can enjoy our beautiful reading room and we even have a seating area in what I like to call our "Library Lawn". Make sure you come visit me soon!  Here is to another wonderful school year! I can't wait!
