About Mr. Martinez
My name is Martin Martinez and this is my 12th year as a 3rd grade teacher at Hogan Cedars Elementary. This is my 20th year as a teacher and I love working with my students! I worked for four years in California (1998-2002) before moving up to Oregon. In California, I taught both third and fourth grades for two years each and earned my Master's Degree in Education.
Upon moving to Oregon, I taught ESL to students grades K-5 in the Beaverton School District (2002-2004). I followed that experience working as a "Teacher on Special Assignment" in the District's ESL Department (2004-2006) for two years before coming to Hogan Cedars.
My wife and I are proud parents of a 4 year old daughter and a 21 month old son. Additionally, we have 2 energetic dogs (Koko and Pepper). In my free time, I like to spend time with my family, kayak, read, travel, run, watch movies and root for my alma mater in college basketball (Gonzaga University)!
