Shelly Martinez - About Me


 About Mrs. Martinez:

Hello everyone!  I am so happy to be teaching music here at Holy Trinity.
It is a wonderful place to be!
 
A little about myself:  I have lived in Kansas City my entire life, attending Olathe East High School and graduating from K-State in 2000.  Go Cats!  :)
My first teaching position was at Louisburg Elementary in Louisburg, KS where I taught elementary music from 2001-2004.  I began teaching elementary music at Brougham Elementary in the Olathe School District in 2004 and remained there until 2007, when I decided to teach elementary music and band at Nativity Parish School in Leawood.  I taught at Nativity from 2007-2009, and had my first child (Nicolas) in May of 2009.  I decided to resign from teaching to stay home with Nicolas, and had our second child (Thomas) in 2011.    
 
I decided to return to teaching now that my boys are in school---they attend St. Joseph Catholic School in Shawnee.  My husband is an attorney, and we have a mini-schnauzer named Rocky!  He is a very spoiled little dog!
 
In my free time I enjoy K-State football, Royals baseball, baking desserts, having fun with my kids, and watching my favorite shows on TV. 
 
Thanks for being such a kind, welcoming Holy Trinity community!  I look forward to working with your children throughout this school year.
