Leslye Salinas is the Business Manager at Roses in Concrete Community School.

“I want to be part of the Surge Fellowship because I want to be in a space with likeminded individuals who want to make a difference in the community and with the next generation. I believe that my participation in Surge will allow me to expand my toolkit and create connections with people that otherwise I might not cross paths with due to limited representation. That is the current status quo, and we need to dismantle that and create spaces where educators that reflect the communities we serve.”
