Welcome to Mrs. Martinez's Counseling Corner

I am proud to be the counselor at one of the best Leader in Me Lighthouse Schools in this great state of Texas! I am a native Texan. I grew up 
in Austin and received a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Texas. I earned a master's degree in school counseling and 
clinical mental health from Lamar University. I have been in education for 12 years and with LISD for 10 years. I believe it is important to
educate the 
whole child. I appreciate that much of what we do at Rutledge Elementary is based on the universal principles of 
leadership and growing life-long learners. Throughout the year, I will teach
facilitate and participate in activities that promote academic/
success for all students. I look forward to partnering with you all to make 2017-2018 an outstanding school year!
