“The memory of my first day of elementary school in New York City has never left me. Although I did not speak English, I knew that I wanted what that classroom and its teacher offered,” said Dr. Cintrón. “Thus, began an academic adventure that would become my professional passion. In accepting this appointment, I delight in the familiar — eager, anxious students in classrooms led by dedicated faculty — while appreciating the challenges and opportunities ahead.”

A native of Puerto Rico and raised in the Bronx, Dr. Cintrón has a bachelor’s in English and comparative literature and a master’s degree in guidance and counseling from City College of New York. She earned a master’s degree and a doctorate in education from Teachers College at Columbia University.
