In one of our most eye-opening episodes ever we dive into how critical and vital it is for our teens to have a holistic education. 

Marissa Fogelman doesn't just talk about it, she lives it, and instills it in the teens she works with. 

Specifically she encourages parents to help their teens by adopting the mindset of the 5 building blocks which are:

1) Mental Power

2) Emotional Intelligence

3) Social Skills

4) Physical Well-Being

5) Personal Development

If you've been disenfranchised with the public school system, or if you just know that for you and your teen there has got to be something more, than I highly encourage you to take detailed notes on this episode!


Marisa Fogelman - Founder, Integra Development Center

Marisa Fogelman has always identified as an educator.

By the time she graduated high school, she knew her life’s purpose included opening a school and changing our educational paradigm. She followed her dream and went on to receive her bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Berkeley and her master’s degree in English Education from Teachers College, Columbia University.

While living in New York City, Marisa taught high school English and helped to grow and develop a school from its second year of inception.

For over a decade, Marisa lived her life’s passion as a progressive educator, working with students from diverse backgrounds in various educational settings.

When she knew the time had come to transform education, she moved to San Diego. She obtained her California Single Subject Teaching Credential in English and furthered her experience by holding a position as Regional College Readiness Counselor.

In this role, she supported high school students at six campuses, helping them design and execute a vision for their future. 

In 2017, Marisa and her founding team successfully gained approval and opened SOUL Charter School.

As the Executive Director of SOUL, Marisa carried out the mission and vision of the school which was to ensure a safe, positive nurturing environment, provide a holistic approach to education through Integra (the holistic program), and engage students in project based learning.

Although SOUL has since closed its doors, its legacy lives on in the families and students we were incredibly grateful to serve. 

Given the current conditions of our time, Marisa is excited to offer a one of a kind program to the community.

She has always believed that there is nothing of greater importance than to invest in our youth.

Through the Integra Development Center, Marisa will continue her life’s purpose guiding students towards having a deeper sense of self, helping them to connect to their life’s passions and purpose, and ensuring they gain the tools to thrive, mentally, emotionally, socially, physically, and personally.

As our most precious resource, our children will masterfully create a better world for us to live in.
