My name is Toni Martinez. I am currently a K-1 Reading Intervention teacher. I taught Kindergarten in ACISD for 31 years. I received my undergraduate degree from Texas A&I Univeristy in Kingsville and earned my Master's degree from Texas A&M University in Corpus Christi. I am excited each and every year to watch my students learn and grow. This is truly a gift, that I am forever thankful for receiving. We all have a calling on this earth. A reason why we are here... Teaching Kindergarten in my hometown was my calling and my professional purpose!
I am a lifetime resident of Rockport, and appreciate the joys of a small town life. I am married to Armando,my husband of 32 years. We have have an adult daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren. I love being part of the Rockport-Fulton community.
My mission for school, is much like my mission in life. I want my students to be life long learners. I want to teach the whole child... socially, academically, and emotionally. I want them to feel successful each day, and know that I believe in them and their ability to learn and grow. I believe in their present and in their future. I hope to build a sense of pride in working hard and doing your best everyday. I hope to instill a sense of helping those around you who are in need. I want them to do all of these things so often, that it becomes part of their very being, part of their character and personality. I want to learn from my students and their families. Ultimately, I want to create a community of learners who learn and grow together... Everyday! I value the relationships with the families in my classroom. As we learn and grow... we become a FAMILY!
My interests include spending time with my family and friends. I would be lost without the close relationship I have with my sisters and sister-friends.
I read everyday... and encourage my students and their families to read everyday as well.
I LOVE spending time with our sweet 9-year-old grandson Cole Blake and grandgirl, Rian Rae who is 2 years old!
