     Naema Ray - Teacher

I was born and raised in Martinez (go Dogs!) and I am proud to live and work in my community. I began my teaching career as an art teacher before moving on to preschool special education. I am also a practicing artist and I enjoy incorporating art and creativity into my classroom.

     Alison Sorscher - Teacher

I am originally from San Diego and graduated from UC Davis in 2012, where I studied human development and nutrition science. I recently graduated from Mills College with a M.A. degree in early childhood education/special education. I have worked and volunteered in a number of different early childhood centers, doing everything from teaching to cooking to leading dance classes. I am passionate about early childhood development, and I can't wait for a wonderful school year with your children!

     Mary Dominquez - Teacher


I am new to the Martinez School district, but have taught in West Contra Costa for 8 years.  I have worked with all ages in special education; from preschool to young adults, but my heart is definitely with our little ones!  I first began teaching in 1997 and have multiple subject, mild to moderate, and moderate to severe teaching credentials, and have had the chance to use them all. I currently live in Hercules with my twin teenagers, 1 dog, 3 cats and 2 geckos.
