Alyssa Pulver - Program Director:

Hello, my name is Alyssa Pulver, I am the Program Director for the River Vale Educational Fund.  I have been working as the Program Director of the A.C.E. Before and After School Program since 2010.  I reside in Oakland with my family. I have a seven year old son who is my world! I am a graduate of the University of Rhode Island with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Exercise Physiology and I hold my Teaching Certificate in Physical Education. Over the years, I have worked as a Personal Trainer and was a General Manager for a large gym. I have many years of management experience as well as customer service.  While, my experience never led me to teaching in a classroom, teaching has always been a passion of mine as well as coaching.  I enjoy the many aspects of children; playing games, teaching, guiding and just hearing about their days are the things I enjoy most. I have found over the years, you can learn a lot about yourself when working with children. I am extremely dedicated to the Fund and the Before and After School Program. I look forward to another great year!

Marisa Martire - Assistant Program Director:

Hi, my name is Marisa, I was the Site Coordinator for four years at Roberge Elementary School and promoted to Assistant Program Director in 2019. I currently reside in Oakland, NJ with my family. I hold a degree in Interactive and Graphic Design from Seton Hall University. Although I love doing graphic work, I decided to use my creative and detail oriented skills to work with children. One of my biggest passions besides outdoor adventures and woodworking is the satisfaction of being with kids, teaching them useful skills they may use in real life, and watching them grow. I’ve made great connections with not just the students but also the families throughout my time here and I am excited to be able to come back and continue this year. My goal is to keep providing manager skills to our staff as well as a safe and entertaining environment for all.
