Mrs. Mariana Stoka
My name is Mariana Stoka and I joined the mathematics department at East Leyden High School in the fall of 2020. I recieved my bachelor's degreee in mathematics with a minor in secondary education from Roosevelt University ('14). Later in my career I graduated from Olivet Nazarene University with a masters in instruction and curriculum with a concentration in English as a Second Language (ESL). I am honored and excited to work with the Leyden community!
I was born and raised in Carpentersville, Illinois. I graduated as a golden eagle in 2010 from H.D. Jacobs High School. I have two younger siblings. My sister lives in Iowa for work and my brother is currently in high school. In 2015, I met my husband while at work, and in 2017 we tied the knot. In August of 2021 we welcomed our baby girl Natalie, and our lives changed in the best of ways. We continue to live in Carpentersville where our hobbies include sports, traveling and creating memories with our baby girl. We love to explore new places and our home is non-stop sports, 24/7, you name it!
