Maria Jaramillo has been honored to serve as the executive director of the Central Region Educational Cooperative since 2010 and has been an employee of CREC since 1993. She began her career as a speech-language pathologist for the Carlsbad, Albuquerque, and Moriarty-Edgewood school districts, as well as the CREC member school districts. Maria also provided speech-language diagnostic services to schools in the Eastern Navajo Agency for eight years through Communication Assessment Services, where she held partial ownership. She has had the privilege of serving as the NMCEL president and was elected to the national AESA executive council where she is currently serving. As a New Mexico educator for over 32 years, Maria is optimistic about the future of New Mexico public education. She is committed to helping the students of New Mexico find their life purpose by providing training and assistance to the educators that guide them. She believes "it takes a team" and is grateful for her staff, council, and the member school districts involved with this collective effort.
