Mr. Martinez's World
Engaged in English

Phase1 Phase2 Phase3  

Welcome to my personal website at John F. Kennedy High School. I've been teaching English for eighteen years. I'm an alumnus from the University of Texas at Austin and a veteran of our Armed Forces.
My goals for all my students are to appreciate all forms of literature, language, and provide them a solid foundation to complete a college education.
As well as educating students, it is my goal to help each one of them enter a college of their choosing and remove all doubt that they cannot achieve more than what they believe. In this age, a college education is the only way this generation as well as our diverse cultures can prosper. 
I expect all of my students to have self-respect as well as respect others. My class is challenging, but it is also rewarding.
