The Martinez Fellowship program is changing the culture of education by prioritizing the personal and professional growth of educators of color. Supporting them in their journey and maximizing opportunities to increase their overall representation in Washington state. Through our programming, Fellows move beyond sustaining as educators and grow into thriving and transformational education leaders.
Our holistic programming supports educators of color by equipping them with critical tools, resources, and community to thrive during and beyond their first years of teaching. Through our trademarked framework, Liberation Pedagogy, Fellows co-create spaces by and for BIPOC stories, experiences, and learnings that center heartwork, headwork, and community.
