Coach Melissa Martinez

I am so excited for the 2022-2023 school year.  Here is a little bit about me:

I was born and raised in San Antonio, Tx.  I attended Providence High School and graduated in 2001.  I continued my education at the University of the Incarnate Word and received a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and hold teaching certifications in Health and Physical Education.  This year will be my 16th year in education.  My first year of teaching was at Metzger Middle School.  I then moved over to Wagner High School and taught and coached basketball and track for eight years.  When Veterans Memorial opened in 2016, I made the move over to that campus and was there until 2022.  I am very excited to have completed the full circle to where I now find myself at Judson High School!  

Some interesting facts about me: 

I have two dogs, Bordeaux (Great Dane) and Kira (Pit Bull/Boxer mix).  I am a HUGE fan of the San Antonio Spurs, the Houston Astros, and UCONN Women's Basketball!  Along my journey, I was also blessed to have worked in the WNBA for 13 years!
