Audrey Martinez, SPED Coordinator

I always tell people I got the best of both worlds in the sense that my father is a Native American from Ohkay Owingeh, New Mexico and my mother is Irish from Stoughton, Massachusetts. I have an attachment to both places. Every summer, I dance in my tribe and visit my grandmother in Massachusetts.

I graduated  from McCurdy High School in Espanola, New Mexico. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado and  my Master’s degree from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque.

My area of study for my graduate program was Special Education. I found that this area is my passion. I enjoy assisting students in all subject areas with the hope of making tremendous gains. I have been teaching since 2005 and some of the grades I have taught include: 2nd, 3rd, 5th and  6th.

I believe in being a parent advocate and helping parents whenever needed. I feel the same way about my staff and believe collaboration is the key to making a school successful.

This is my first year living in Taos and I’m so excited! I can’t wait to go hiking and snowboarding.
