My name is Manisha Deshpande. I am incredibly excited to be a part of the Antioch Elementary School community this upcoming school year. I graduated from Bryn Mawr College then continued on to earn my Masters degree from Columbia University in elementary and special education. I have worked in grades kindergarten through grade eight either as a classroom or special education resource room teacher. My husband Hemant and I have two sons, Pranav and Prashan, both of whom will be attending Antioch this year. I am really looking forward to an exciting school year ahead!
