Mrs. Lena Martinez
Welcome! I am excited to meet my new family of Kindergarteners! I am back in Kindergarten after 6 years in first grade and please know that I cannot wait to have a ton of fun!! It is amazing to see the growth that will take place over the next year! Please know how delighted and eager I am to make this a smooth transition from"big" school into first grade.
My goal every year is to make a difference in each child's life by inspiring them to LOVE learning and thinking. I feel that parents are partners in educating children. Thank you for being their first teacher and allowing me to continue their growth during the daylight hours. Together we can help each child reach their highest potential; for they are our future. Thank you in advance for all of your help ~ I could not do this job without you.
I was born in New York, spent seven years in Louisiana, and spent the next 23 years in sunny Southern California. My husband and I, along with our 3 children decided to settle down here in San Antonio, Texas. I received my degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio which makes this my 14th year of teaching ~ all at Steubing Ranch Elementary!
