Meet Mr. Martinez

joseHello! My name is Jose Martinez.  I am a secondary teacher at CWDHS in Fergus, Ontario, for the Upper Grand District School Board.  I currently teach media arts.  In the past I have taught Math, Science, Biology and Chemistry at our school.  In the summertime I teach Grade 11 University Chemistry and Grade 12 College Chemistry.

I am the co-head of Arts at my school.  I am also an Apple Distinguished Educator, class of 2011, Canada.

I have a real passion for soccer.Over a decade ago I captained the University of Guelph Men’s Soccer team. I’m excited to be playing again for the Fergus Elora Men’s Soccer Team this year. In the fall I coach the senior boy’s soccer team at CWDHS and in the spring I coach the senior girl’s soccer team. For the past 2 years I was the head coach for the U8 and U9 Guelph Rep Boy’s soccer program and am currently the 1st Director at Large for Fergus Elora Soccer.

I am married to Sally, who is an occasional teacher with the Upper Grand District School Board. We have 2 children, Javier and Sebastian.
