About Me
Biographical Sketch: 

I am a former LINCOLN LANCER and a Poudre High School graduate! I have earned my Bachelors degree from Colorado State University. I am married to Sylvia Martinez who is a CSU graduate with both her bachelors and masters degrees. I have two daughters (Leilani and Franki Sue), both former Lancers as well! I have a son named Ruben and a son named Antonio. I am blessed with three grandsons (Izekiel, Keo, and Chase).

I enlisted in the US Army after graduation from Poudre High School and earned an Honorable Discharge in 1989.

I have been a teacher at Lincoln Middle School since 2011 and have been named Rotary Teacher of the Month in November 2015, and Rotary Teacher of the Year in September 2016.

I am proud to be a LANCER!

Why I enjoy teaching: 

Our children are the future! I believe we empower them to succeed through education! It is rewarding to witness former students and athletes succeed in life and do great things-no matter how small or how large their success may be. Many teachers, coaches, supervisors, and mentors, have invested in my future and I owe it to them and my community to serve our students and their families.

Favorite Books: 

"THEY CALL ME COACH-JOHN WOODEN"

Interest & Hobbies: 

I enjoy coaching sports as well as business and success! I have coached football, basketball, wrestling, and track. I played football at Lincoln and Poudre as well as running track and wrestling at Poudre.  I started a business called Coach Enterprises. I like to learn about success principals, and try to empower and assist those that have the least resources to succeed.

What I like most about my school: 

I am blessed to have a unique perspective of Lincoln Middle School! I have the lens of a former student, a parent, a coach, and a teacher! As a student my teachers were great to me! They treated me with respect and gave me confidence to succeed! From a parents point of view, the Lincoln staff cared about my children and educated them. My experience as a coach has ranged from a city championship to no wins in a season, but one thing holds true- my athletes are amazing kids! My view as a teacher is that I have the special privilege to serve our students. We have great staff who care about OUR KIDS and work tirelessly. I am proud to work alongside them. Most of all, I was one of these Lincoln kids, and I know the positive impact that teachers and coaches that care about a student can have on their future! This is a huge responsibility!
