Welcome to PreK!


Hello!  My name is Katharine Martinez.  I am excited to be teaching PreK again this year.  I have been teaching primary grades for seventeen years, and sixteen of those years have been here at Spring Meadows.  I love working here because I get to work with some of the best teachers in the district. We are like a family and we all have the same thing in common...a love for children and teaching.

When I was in the 5th grade, I was inspired by my teacher because of the attention and praise that I received from him.  That was when I realized that I wanted to become a teacher. I turned my dream into a reality by attending the University of the Incarnate Word, where I majored in education and minored in reading.  I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. I am certified to teach EC-4.

I believe that every child has the potential to succeed. I also believe in maintaining a safe, happy and positive environment where my students can feel comfortable, confident and loved. I strive to create a learning environment that is fun and exciting, a place where they are able to explore and learn. 

My heart melts every time I see the face of a child who has mastered a new skill or one who has conquered a challenge. It gives me a sense of accomplishment knowing that I can make a positive difference in the lives of children.

Welcome to PreK!
