Hi! My name is Ms. Martinez and I am thrilled to be teaching 2nd grade at Federal Heights Elementary. This is my first year as a panther and my very first year teaching. I graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder with my bachelor's in Psychology and minor in Leadership Studies, along with my teaching licensure for Primary Education. I am currently pursuing my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction with an endorsement in Cluturally and Linguistically Diverse Education. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and puppy - Apollo! I also love traveling to new places and trying new things. When I'm not teaching, you can always catch me reading or binge-waching tv shows! I am so excited to be a part of the FHE family and I can't wait to climb to new heights this year with my students!
