About Me

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 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. 


Mission Statement

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

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 8-year-old grandson Cole Blake and grandgirl, Rian Rae who is 2 years old!
