Cindy Marten

Cindy Marten has used her reflective approach to teaching and learning as a classroom teacher, a literacy specialist, and as a school principal. She is deeply committed to creating conditions and opportunities, both in and out of school, for all children to become actively literate members of a democratic society. Her passion for her work led her to serve as president of the San Diego Council of Literacy Professionals. The International Reading Association honored her with the first Regie Routman Teacher Recognition Award. After serving as a teacher and administrator for more than 25 years, including six years as principal at Central Elementary, Cindy was named Superintendent of the San Diego Unified School District in 2013.
