Marika Belusa, English Teacher, IB MYP Coordinator

Ms. Belusa is entering her fifth year at Roosevelt High School as an English teacher and IB MYP coordinator. Before coming to MPS, Ms. Roosevelt taught in the Northwest suburbs and in Wisconsin (for like 10 years!). As a teacher, Ms. Belusa is passionate about learning with her students about how to become critical thinkers and consumers in the world, and how to be the best humans possible. 


Ms. Belusa believes that ALL students are intelligent, storied beings who deserve to be heard and who can and will succeed-- in her classroom, at Roosevelt, and in the world! 


Outside of school, Ms. Belusa enjoys hanging with her family, especially karaoke with her daughter who is in Spanish Immersion at Anwatin Middle School. She also enjoys cooking, biking, walking, yoga, studying natural health, bingeing Netflix shows, and scrolling on Instagram. Last but not least, Ms. Belusa spends lots of time cuddling with her 15-pound puppy, Sunny.
