Mrs. S. Martinez

Teacher Facilitator
Hello, my name is Sylvia Martinez and I am the Teacher Facilitator here at John H. Shary Elementary.  Graduating from the University of Texas-Pan American, I taught for 27 years and enjoyed the challenge daily. I believe all students can learn. The advancement of student learning will occur if they are given the right tools along with the encouragement to have the determination to succeed. The past 7 years I have been Teacher Facilitator which was a change in my position.  My role will be to facilitate our staff when educating our students. This is an exciting time for me.  I will give 100% of my time, effort and teamwork to succeed in our campus endeavor.
     A little about my family, my husband is Arturo Martinez the Asst. Coach at Shimotsu Elementary.   I have two awesome sons. They are both graduates of SHS. Nicholas, my oldest, graduated from Texas A&M University with a double major in Bio-Chemistry and Genetics. My younger son, Gabriel attends Heidelberg University. this is his first year and is Wrestling for the University.
