Executive Director
Agassiz Baldwin Community
Before assuming her current position as Executive Director, Maria (she/her/hers) served the Agassiz Baldwin Community in a variety of roles, beginning as an afterschool teacher in 2008 and later advancing to 1st-5th Grade Site Director and then Director of Children’s Programs. Under her leadership, Agassiz Baldwin Children’s Programs have significantly grown in enrollment and continue to thrive.

In addition to this long list of skills, she holds a B.A. in Elementary Education and Sociology from Beloit College (2007) and a certificate from Boston University’s Institute for Non-Profit Management and Leadership (2015).
