I'm Cristina Martinez, and I'm delighted to be running for Mercer Island School Board Director, Position number 1.
As a parent in the Mercer Island School District, I am deeply committed to providing every child with an outstanding education that meets their academic, social, and mental health needs. Through my active involvement in Superintendent advisory groups and leadership roles within the PTA Council, I have witnessed the transformative power of community engagement and will move from an advocacy role to one in which collective action can positively impact the entire school district.
If elected to the School Board, I will work to cultivate the strengths of our district and prioritize academic and budgetary decisions that serve the best interests of all students, educators, and families. My priorities will include rigorous advanced courses, support for students who learn differently, curriculum that reflects our community, and retaining and attracting top professional talent to our schools.
Join me in creating a stronger community through education.
