Our History

Dear Latin@ / LatinX community,

Welcome to LENYIS! We are happy that you are interested in learning more about our organization. Latino Educators In New York Independent Schools (LENYIS). LENYIS was founded fifteen years ago by Zenaida Muslin. Our goal is to bring together Latino educators in New York independent schools in order to share our experiences, identify our individual and collective needs, find solutions to recurring issues, and celebrate our many cultures. In addition to nourishing ourselves, LENYIS sets out to consider the needs of our independent schools Latin@ / LatinX students and their families.
