Hi! My name is Ms. Martinez and I am thrilled to be teaching 1st grade at Federal Heights Elementary. 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. Go Buffs! I also have my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction with an endorsement in Cluturally and Linguistically Diverse Education from the University of Colorado Denver. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and my not so little pup - Apollo! I also love traveling to new places and trying new things. When I'm not teaching, you can always catch me reading, binge-waching tv shows, or listening to podcasts.
