Hello! I’m Mr. Martinez, and welcome to 3rd grade religion. During this school year the students will be learning about how God calls all of us to faith. We learn about the father of faith, Abraham, and how he trusted God in his life’s journey. We also learn about Moses, St. Paul, the Virgin Mary, and many others who have lived God’s call to holiness. We provide an environment that is Christ like to build a positive attitude to live the Gospel message. Most importantly we place Jesus at the center of our faith by attending Mass once a week. I am the music minister for our monthly school liturgies, which are lively and spirit filled. Some of the other responsibilities I have include being the 5th Grade Aide, community outreach with the junior high classes to feed the homeless and to visit the retired Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, P.E. with 1st Grade, junior high guitar classes, and SMTV News which is a video presentation of our school activities and announcements. SMT has been a very special place for me during these last four years. It is very unique in regard to the support and involvement of the parents, and how all the latest technologies are provided for an excellent learning experience.
