Ivan Martinez

3rd Grade Teacher


I am originally from South Los Angeles but spent most of my life in South Gate. After high school I attended UCLA (Go Bruins!!!) where I studied literature and some French. I am very excited to start my teaching career and look forward to nurturing all your interests and passions.

In my free time I enjoy many things some of which involve spending time with my family and friends. I also like to visit new places, go to new restaurants, play soccer, and meet new people. When I do not feel like going out I enjoy reading, writing, listening to music, and re-watching old movies.

This year one of my goals is to learn how to cook properly once and for all. I also would like to start mountain biking finally or get involved in some new type of outdoor activity. I am always looking to try something new or interesting and do not believe in taking no for an answer.
