Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! I’m Mrs. Martinez, older students or siblings may remember me as Ms. V. That’s okay, that’s what I love about Bellaire Elementary, the familiar faces each year of this close knit community that is, HISD! This will be my 5th full year teaching at Bellaire and I am so excited! This year will be my first as a self contained teacher and I am thrilled to have more time to get to know my students!
After graduating from the University of the Incarnate Word, I worked for a great insurance company where I was given the opportunity to volunteer reading to elementary students in SAISD. It was then I knew I wanted to be a teacher. I later received my certification through TOPP Region 20 and shortly after began teaching at Bellaire!
I love spending time with my husband and our family and friends. I enjoy traveling, hiking, cooking, reading, singing and dancing (in the kitchen), antique shopping, listening to audiobooks or podcasts, and so much more!
This year I hope to inspire and encourage our students to grow academically and emotionally amidst the new “normal”. Let’s have a great year!
