Ms. Jennifer Martinez
I am excited to be your 5th grade teacher this year! My goal is to make this the best school year yet! The 2021-2022 school year will be my seventeenth year teaching 5th grade in the Murrieta Valley Unified School District (7th year at Alta.)
I grew up in Fremont located in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area. When I was sixteen-years-old, my family relocated to San Diego. After high school, I attended college there and was hired in Murrieta shortly after.
I have two beautiful children: a ten-year-old daughter and a six-year-old son.
My hobbies include swimming, reading, crafting, and watching sports. I also enjoy spending quality with my family and relaxing.
Some fun facts about me...you will see me drinking coffee in the morning and water throughout the day. I also like sparkling water too. You may notice that I pride myself on being organized. Something unique about me is that I write and eat with my left hand, but I cut and play sports right-handed.
Here are some of my favorites:
Teams: San Francisco 49ers, Golden State Warriors
Drink: Water, Flavored Sparkling Water, Diet Coke, and Iced Coffee
Store: Amazon.com, Target, Michaels
Restaurant: Texas Roadhouse
Fast Food: Panera, Chick-fil-A, Chipotle
I look forward to getting to know you more throughout the school year and sharing more things about myself too.
