Excellent teachers. Equitable classrooms. Empowered students.
The mission of The Martinez Foundation is to improve teacher diversity and the retention of teachers of color in Washington State. We seek to accomplish this by providing scholarship support to teacher candidates in a Masters of Teaching program, early career coaching, and ongoing professional development.
What we’re up to
Please save the date and plan to join us October 6, 2015 for a very special Keys to Success Luncheon event featuring Shiza Shahid, Co-Founder of Malala Fund, the organization representing the young Pakistani activist who was shot by the Taliban for her campaign for girls’ education.
Martinez Fellows were well represented at WEA’s Teaching Equity Conference on May 16, 2015 at Highline College. “I am so proud of this amazing group of educators,” stated The Martinez Foundation’s Director of Education, Karen Harris. “They all shared meaningful insights and demonstrated true leadership inspiring others to join in this work.”
