Sara Martino is a certified arts integration specialist, part time lecturer, and K-12 dance educator from New Jersey. Her deep exposure to various elements of creativity, performance, and somatic practice have made her realize that learning experiences are most enjoyed in ever-changing, differentiated settings and environments. Through the pillars of collaboration, trust, transparency, and passion, Martino has taught in public education, at New Jersey dance studios, and for public educational after-school programs for over a decade. She works as a full-time arts integration specialist for her school district, in which she develops arts integration lessons and projects, delivers professional development both in-district and for the wider learning community, and liaises with residency programs. Martino also serves as a part time lecturer in the Dance Department at Mason Gross, Rutgers University, as well as a dance studio instructor for pre-professional youth.
