Our September Staff Member of the Month is Mrs. Martha Martinez! Mrs. Martinez is one of our campus Second Grade Bilingual teachers. She is what we call “self-contained” meaning she teaches all subjects! Mrs. Martinez has worked at DeZavala for 4 years, but began her teaching career four years ago. In 2003 Mrs. Martinez began teaching at the Channelview Early Childhood Center. She then moved to Crenshaw Elementary where she taught 2nd grade for 5 years. After Crenshaw she decided to stay home with her children until she returned to the Early Childhood center and eventually transferred to DeZavala where she remains. Mrs. Martinez attended University of Houston Downtown (Go Gators!) where she graduated with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and a Bilingual Education Certification EC – 4. Her hobbies include spending time with her family, photography and entertaining. Mrs. Martinez says her favorite thing about DeZavala is the student population. She says it reminds her of her childhood and she can relate to their hardships which moves her to give them her best!
