Dafne Martinez is a Paraeducator at Environmental Charter Middle School-Gardena. Dafne is at ECS because she believes everyone should have the opportunity to pursue higher education and wants to inspire students to keep learning and keep asking questions.

She is currently a junior at California State University, Dominguez Hills, and is majoring in Child Development, with a minor in Spanish. She hopes to one day become a teacher herself. Dafne is a native of Gardena, California and enjoys going camping every summer.
