My name is Madeline Martinez and I am a bilingual certified teacher currently teaching 4th grade self-contained. I was born in Puerto Rico and moved to Massachusetts when I was 11 years old. After finishing high school and two year college I move to Houston Texas. I continued my education online with Western Governors University, and then graduated with a Bachelor in Art on Interdisciplinary Studies from KG to 12. I graduated with my teacher General and Bilingual Education from KG to 6. I have been teaching for last 12 years. It has been 10 years with Fort Bend ISD and this is my 7 year at Heritage Rose Elementary. I am happily married for 25 years and have two awesome children. I believe as a teacher that is my responsibility to provide the students the essentials tools, knowledge and motivation they need to lead successful, be productive community members, and fulfilling lives.
