Maritza Gladyn was born and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Growing up in a large, low-income family, her parents always instilled the idea that if she and her siblings wanted more in life, they had to work hard to achieve it.
Gladyn recently made the decision to go back to school to receive a higher education. Since then, she has completed her Associates Degree at Wenatchee Valley College and is currently working on her Bachelor’s Degree at Grand Canyon University. She takes great reward in her education, and the knowledge that every challenge starts with a dream, and everything is within reach.
Gladyn has been in the educational field for five years. Her journey began in Taylor, Texas as a receptionist and quickly led to becoming Principal Secretary within six months. After three years, Gladyn moved back to the Pacific Northwest to work as a Secretary/Office Manager for two years.
Gladyn says her ultimate objective is to do everything in her power to meet the needs of the scholars, teachers, staff and community.
