Today we have Ana Martinez, a longtime educator, and friend, on the show. She was the first in her family to attend college and as a proud Latinx professional she pours so much of her heart into improving the lives of so many through equitable education.
Ana has a long history as an educator in Los Angeles in both public schools and charter schools. We invited Ana to the podcast because we want our listeners who may be thinking of a career in education to learn about her journey and the way she took her role to the next level during the pandemic.
Ana has accomplished so much in the field of education quickly rising to the ranks as a successful teacher, dean (at only 24 years old), assistant principal, principal, chief of staff, and now a chief academic officer. She's an academic CEO and her words will have you feeling all the feels full of wisdom, inspiration, and so much love.
