Ms. Elizabeth Martinez

My name is Elizabeth Martinez, and I am both excited and honored to be your principal at Proviso West.

My 30-plus years in education include both National and International experience in both public and private school settings. In previous roles, I have developed curriculum in large, diverse, and high-achieving school districts. I also believe strongly in social justice and equity, social emotional learning, strategic planning, blended learning, team empowerment, community relations, as well as innovative technology initiatives.

I am excited to begin another school year! Myself and our staff will ensure that this is a smooth first week for all of our students and their families.

Go Panthers!
