    My name is Marina Orozco, and this year will be my eighth year of teaching, but my first year at Uni Hill! I have a Master's degree in Higher Education along with my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education (endorsed in ESL, Bilingual, and Spanish).  I chose education as my career because I believe in being part of a community effort and leaving lasting impacts in our schools and our local and global communities. I am a strong advocate for equity in education and will work to create a positive educational experience for Uni Hill students.
