Mirna Lis Martínez for Board of Education

“Students must be validated and supported about who they are and where they come from. If their views are respected, they are made to feel that they are worthwhile. This helps them learn, grow and achieve. Then, they can decide, ‘I will learn from you’ ”

WHERE I’VE BEEN:

Teacher, Bilingual elementary and middle school teacher in Boston, New York, and New London. Experience working with students with a wide-range of socioeconomic and academic backgrounds
Member, C.U.R.E (Citizens United for a Renaissance in Education)
Member, F.R.E.S.H. (Food: Resources, Education, Security, Health) advisory board
President, Post Hill neighborhood group

WHERE I WANT TO GO:

Improve the quality of our schools by:

•    Helping to build a culture of mutual respect between school staff, administration, students and their families:

– in the school building, by supporting teacher’s creativity
– in the classroom, more teacher-student collaboration
– for our parents and families, by offering parents real ways to get involved in their child’s learning
– for our school community, by providing clean school grounds

•    Responding to the holistic needs of children

•    Expanding the classroom beyond the 4 walls

•    Increasing emphasis on project-based learning

•    Building on students innate curiosity and desire to learn
