Mr. Marcus Martinez

I am looking forward to being your Digital Media teacher this year. I attended the University of the Incarnate Word where I studied to become a graphic designer. After graduating from UIW I worked at a local newspaper where I realized my true calling was to become an educator. I went on to complete my teaching certification and began teaching and coaching at a private high school here in San Antonio. I have been teaching since 2012, and have been on our campus since 2014. On campus, I am the Campus JETIS, Electives Department Chair, Yearbook sponsor, award-winning BexarFest/ Media Club sponsor, and Student Travel sponsor. My educational foundation acquired throughout my lifetime has taught me about hard work, integrity, and compassion which are values I try to instill in my students throughout the years. 

 

I truly believe that my past teachers and mentors have played a pivotal role in the person I have become today and I am very grateful to be able to pass on my knowledge and spark interest in the future of our society. I am very grateful to be a part of the JECA family, and I hope you are too.

 

Message to students: “Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional” -Roger Crawford. 

I always tell my students that we are presented with choices almost every minute of every day, and our power is how we are going to respond to the outcome of those choices. Don’t choose to be defeated when things get tough, rise above like the amazing JECA people you are.
