Marcia Tineo

Teacher-

Marcia was born and raised in Queens, New York. She attended elementary school in the Dominican Republic and returned to Queens where she attended middle school and high school.  She has a Bachelor in Arts degree from the State University of New York at Purchase College. Marcia spent a few years in the corporate world working for an entertainment conglomerate.

Marcia was not feeling fulfilled in her corporate world and wanted to have an impact on the lives of urban families.  She decided to change careers. She started her career in education in 2001 as a Teacher Assistant at a school in New Canaan, Connecticut. She was accepted into a Teaching Fellowship in Boston. She taught ELA to high school students in Boston while taking courses at Simmons College. She received a 7-12 ELA certification at the end of her fellowship.  Marcia decided to move back to New York in order to be close to her family. Marcia worked for a large charter network in Harlem for a few years as a social studies teacher. She then worked at a charter school in Brooklyn where she was the Dean of Culture and then the Assistant Principal for Instruction.

Marcia is a proud founding teacher of Haven Middle School for Social Leadership. She has a Master of Science Degree in Educational Administration from Mercy College. The focus of the Master’s program was on school leadership and district leadership. Marcia has a School Building Leader certification from New York State and is awaiting her School District Leader certification.

During her free time, Marcia enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter Ana Lucia, and Baxter (her silky terrier).  She enjoys traveling, gardening, and watching movies.
