I graduatd from Lincoln High School, BS Degree from Texas Southern University, Master Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Phoenix.
I am truly fortunate to teach at this grade level, because they are so eager to learn new concepts in education. I believe in teaching at each student’s educational level. I am using many ideas that will enhance their learning during the 2017-2018 school year.

Antonia Martinez: Spanish (antoniam@trentinternationale.com)

HOLA!! First of all I’m so grateful to be surrounded by all the kids and teachers that make Trent InternationalE School a peaceful and fun place to learn and educate ourselves every day. Yes, I said to educate ourselves because even though that I’m the Spanish Teacher I truly believe that everyday is an opportunity to learn something new, especially when you work with children and teenagers.

I’m a native Honduran. I was born and raised in San Pedro Sula, the second largest city in Honduras. I won a Scholarship and came to study in Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.. Afterwards I returned to Honduras and worked with a nonprofit organization as an Investment Officer, where I had the opportunity to meet people from all around the world and also had the opportunity to travel to several countries. Being a foreign student in this country and the job I had back in Honduras I have learned a lot about other countries and also realized that I love meeting different people as well as share, teach and learn along with them other languages and cultures.

I’m sure that in someway I’m being part of the education of your child’s continued success in schooling, in learning, and in soaring to new heights and help them to become potential bilingual Doctors, Lawyers, Administrators and maybe even our future President.

I worked for six years at the Blaffer Art Museum where I was a docent, gallery attendant, and helped with installation of Art shows. My years at the gallery have given me a unique set of skills to help your children learn how to put together art shows, and what kind of careers are available to artistic people as well as how to create a portfolio for college review. I believe that every student can draw and be creative. Creativity helps the student to think outside of the box, learn to problem solve, and increase their thinking power in all subjects. Learning art teaches your child about cultural diversity, human history, and self-expression. I like to get to know my students and on what criteria he/she is talented. I teach the skills, techniques, and daily practices necessary to strengthen their creative minds.
