Meet Dr. Marie Flore Lindor-Latortue Candidate Miami Dade County School Board District 7.

Born and Raised in Port-au-Prince, Haitian. Dr. Lindor-Latortue, preferably Dr. Flore traveled at 18 years to Puerto Rico where she obtained double major in Elementary Education and Psychology. Miami Dade Resident for over 28 years, she shares that Education to her is a vocation as she was 5 years when she started to transfer education to her siblings and neighbors. She worked in day care: Kiddie Wonderland in Hialeah from 1992 to 1993.

She was also an elementary teacher; she loves 3rd graders and refers to them as beginning world thinkers. With a Master in Health Services Administration, she states that Education and Health go hand in hand, because a child who is hungry can’t learn. This is why she also brings to her race a sense of inclusion because her experience as social worker, case manager, and health administrator help her understand and sympathize with our parents, teachers, all school personal who also visit Jackson Memorial Hospital where she worked for about 20 years.

Dr. Flore is a non-traditional. As a very engaged parent, she referred to her husband and children as her first major endorsement because she stated: We can’t ask the world to do if the do’s do not start home. Her and Her Husband are very engaged parents and our children she stated are all product of Miami Dade County Public Schools. She stands to change the status quo and brings the bold message of rotation of talents inviting voters during this election to think outside the box. She proposes that school board members should have terms limits. No one should be so comfortable in a seat that they lost sense of the issues. She also introduced the integration of Pre-K to 12 instead of K-12, development of cost saving measures where we think seriously of possible recession.

Dr. Flore is also a radio/Tv personality. She has been putting district 7 on the map with an emphasis on Inclusion. Inclusion where salary is a not a propaganda through a referendum but a demand for salary revision including substitute teachers, nurse educators, custodians and bus drivers.

On August 18, 2020, it is time to Make Education First when you vote Marie Flore Lindor-Latortue School Board Member District 7.
