Ms. E Martinez is proud to be a product of Chicago Public Schools. Her experiences as a student in CPS and as a special education assistant are what motivate her to keep improving as an individual and as a grad student. She feels privileged to have had the opportunity of working with Chicago’s youth across the city, including Gage Park, Rogers Park, Cabrini-Green, and now Pilsen. She is a strong believer in learning through play and is a big fan of Howard Gardner.
Ms. E Martinez holds a B.A. from Columbia College where she majored in film and minored in education and is currently pursuing a Masters in Early Childhood Education. She enjoys playing classical guitar, flamenco, traveling, NPR, watching House Hunters, meeting with Orozco Youth Radio and, of course, great coffee.
