Mrs. Martinez's Class

Welcome to our class web-page! Please subscribe to this page to receive updates about the happenings of our classroom.

I grew up in Murrieta and graduated from Murrieta Valley High School. I live in Fallbrook with my husband and two kids, Aurora and Matthew. Aurora is in 10th grade this year and Matthew is in 1st. I love doing outdoor activities such as camping, fishing, hiking, snowboarding, bike riding, and traveling. But I also love to read, shop, and get massages. My favorite type of food usually involves cheese. There are several things I enjoy, but the activity that tops them all is going on vacation with my family. Lastly, this is my sixth year teaching at Sycamore!

I received my AA and AS from MSJC and earned my BA in Liberal Studies from California State University San Marcos. I started the credential program thru CSUSM as well and earned my Multiple Subject credential. I decided a few years later to also get a teaching credential in Physical Education and taught PE for one year.
The best and easiest way to communicate with me is thru Remind. You can download the app or use the website. The class code is 362chf
My Favorites:
  • Color: Teal/turquoise/mint
  • Snack(s): flavored popcorn, Twix, and See's Butterchew Chocolates
  • Drinks from Starbucks: hot mochas and caramel macchiatos, mango dragonfruit tea, strawberry açaí tea
  • Crazy socks
  • lemon desserts
  • Stores: Target, Amazon, and Bath and Body
  • Birthday: March 11



Dear Parents,


We are kicking off a virtual program called Kids Heart Challenge to help students “Kick Cabin Fever to the Curb” and to promote staying active and healthy while learning from home. For 10 days, I will send 10 e-mails that will keep you and your family physically and mentally fit! The American Heart Association will lead a Livestream assembly, just for our Sycamore Academy students at 9:00am via Zoom.


In the meantime, please register your child here:  or by downloading the Free “Kids Heart Challenge” app.  We want 100% of our students taking the online pledge to BE KIND, MOVE MORE or BE READY! Students who register before the assembly will even get a special shoutout from the American Heart Association during the live presentation! We hope your family can join the live presentation!  Thank You! Here’s the Zoom link for 4/27 at 9:00 am Zoom
