Mrs. Mary Kate Martinez
There is really not much interesting about me, but there are things that I like my students and their parents to know about me. I have been teaching English at the sophomore level for over 8 years. My career started out in Laredo, TX at LBJ High School, and when my husband transferred from Laredo back to his hometown of Kingsville, I was blessed to become a part of the Badger family. I have a degree in Psychology with a minor in English from TAMUK, and am certified by the state of Texas to teach ELAR 4-12. I love reading and discussing reading strategies and am interested in continuing my education in literacy studies soon. Writing is another passion of mine; I adore how words can have such an influence on people and culture. I have three children, two girls(7 & 5) and a boy (2), a few cows, a pig, some chickens, and a dog; and I love being a teacher!
