Excellent teachers. Equitable classrooms. Empowered students.
The Martinez Foundation supports teachers of color through scholarships, mentoring, and professional development. We do it because our communities need increased equity in the classroom and more role models for our children. We are Washington State’s only organization whose mission is to improve teacher diversity and support teachers of color in their profession.
What we’re up to
“Seattle Pacific University graduate students Amber Frazier and Ricky Dos Remedios want to be teachers and role models for today’s students — and to help rectify the minority teacher imbalance. They are SPU’s first Martinez Fellows, and are supported by scholarships from the Martinez Foundation, regular mentoring, and ongoing professional development to help ensure their teaching success.”
Join The Martinez Foundation at Safeco Field on Friday, June 13, 2014 as the Seattle Mariners take on the Texas Rangers!
Martinez Fellow Bonivi Caculitan Sanchez is “so much in the groove that it’s tough to imagine that she’s only in her second year as a teacher,” according to a recent article.
