Martinez Fellows Prepare For Fall Seminar

We’re out of the gates and into a brand new school year! With our TAF efforts under way, we wanted to take a moment to announce that The Martinez Foundation Fellows Seminar will be taking place this October 3, 2015.

The Martinez Foundation Fellows seminar has been an integral part of The Martinez Foundation’s culture and operations, and will continue to be part of our teacher development program once the Martinez Foundation is officially part of TAF, starting October 5.

We’ve created a Martinez Fellowship at TAF merger FAQ blog post on the TAF blog. Here you will be able to find answers for many of the most common questions related to this very momentous time in both organizations history.

Our goal is to keep you fully informed as we work to bring the two organizations together, but of course if you have any immediate questions or concerns, feel free to contact Uma Rao directly.

And don’t forget to catch up with us on October 6th for the annual Martinez Fellows Luncheon!

Join Team TAF at the Keys To Success Luncheon with keynote speaker Shiza Shahid on October 6, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue.

Shiza Shahid is an entrepreneur and social activist of Pakistani origin. She is the Co-Founder and Global Ambassador of the Malala Fund, the organization representing the young Pakistani activist who was shot by the Taliban for her campaign for girls’ education.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available! Please contact us for more information.
