Marissa Hromadka

Marissa moved to Franklin from Houston, TX in 2015 and feels very blessed to live in such a beautiful place with such kind hearted people.

She attended Texas A&M University earning a B.A. in Psychology. After college she worked for the Texas A&M University Child Development Center as a lead in the three year old class. Marissa & her husband moved to Dallas for a year and after returning to Houston she taught the threes for Humble ISDs Early Head Start program.

The Hromadkas have been blessed with two beautiful children (Bella and Luke) and she felt God calling her to teach in a Christian preschool setting. This allowed her to be with her children and strengthen their love for learning about the Lord. CCC reminded her so much of the school she loved so much, but had to leave to relocate. She immediately knew that ClearView was the right place for her.  She feels blessed to have a spot on staff with the infants where she can continue doing what she loves.
