Message from the Director

Suzanne MurphyDear Martinez Community,

Welcome to the fall/winter quarters at Martinez Adult Education. We are excited to provide a variety of classes to Martinez residents and residents of the surrounding communities. If you are a new or returning student you will have numerous options for days and times to take classes and many are offered with flexible start dates.

As we start a new year it is important to highlight some of the events that Martinez Adult Education hosted last spring and will continue this year. In April we provided transportation to over 50 students to visit Diablo Valley College. They toured different programs at the school and were provided with assistance in registering and enrolling in college. We will be providing this same opportunity to students this fall and encourage all who are interested to participate. We hosted the first Contra Costa County Adult Education Career Training Program Exposition in May. We had approximately 400 people attend this event and we had over 30 career programs represented from across the county. During the spring and summer, we provided online opportunities for our students to connect with employers. We hosted Zoom webinars for students to learn how to apply for jobs with Kaiser Permanente and UCSF Health. We look forward to hosting more of these webinars throughout the year and will keep you posted through our website. Please note that our website has changed the new address:

At Martinez Adult Education, we strive to create an inclusive and supportive learning environment where everyone can thrive. Age is never a barrier to acquiring knowledge, and each step you take toward your educational goals is a testament to your resilience and determination. Remember, the most investment you can make is in yourself, and we are honored to be a part of your educational journey.

Once again, welcome! Here's to an extraordinary year of learning and personal fulfillment.


Suzanne Murphy,
