Ms. Martinez

Hello, my name is Dañiel Martinez and I am so excited to be one of your 3rd grade teachers at Pate's Creek Elementary! I grew up in Santa Clara, California and attended college at California State University, Chico.  I received my bachelor's degree in liberal studies in 2015, and was hired at a San Jose elementary school shortly after graduation. I worked there for two years as a classroom support aide for special needs students, and as the kindergarten through 4th grade art teacher. In my 3rd year, I made the decision to switch to the general education classroom. I co-taught 4th grade with an outstanding group of 32 students. During this period of time I was able to earn my teaching credential.

  • In 2018, I moved to sunny San Diego with my boyfriend, Brent, and adopted our fur baby, Henry. I was hired at a Montessori charter schoool to teach a mixed class of 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students. I stayed with this school for two years until the opportunity presented itself to move to Georgia. In the summer of 2020, Brent, Henry and I packed up our lives and moved to Fayetteville. 

    So far I am loving my new home in Georgia and at Pate's Creek! I am looking forward to continuing on this adventure with you all.

    Go panthers!
