Marina Nolte

Program Coordinator, UCC

Infant & Toddler


I have been working in the field of Early Childhood Education for 30 years now, 26 of those at UC Santa Barbara. I have always loved working with children and their families so it was an easy decision to start working as a teaching assistant at the Orfalea Family Children's Center while I was completing my BA in Psychology at the University. I also have a Master's Degree in Human Development with an emphasis in Developmental Education. I was fortunate to be able to teach in an infant, toddler, and preschool room at the Center and have worked as a Program Coordinator at both sites. Being able to participate in children's learning and sense of wonder is so rewarding! I have enjoyed being part of such a wonderful team and hope to serve families for years to come.
