Hello! My name is Diedra Anne Martinez and I am excited to introduce myself to all of you on our elementary school website. I have been an educator for over 25 years in Los Lunas Schools.
In my free time, I love to paint and spend time with my loved ones and my teacup Bischon Frise, Bella. I find joy in seeing our scholar's faces light up when they have learned something, share their positive experiences, and feel safe to learn.
I have had the honor of teaching 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 6th grade. I was also an assistant principal at Daniel Fernandez Intermediate for two years then I was transferred to Desert View Elementary as assistant principal with Jeanne Moore when it transferred from in intermediate school to elementary school.
It has been an honor to be with Desert View Elementary Family for over 15 years to see such a growth in our positive culture, empowering others and encouraging all to always do their best. I am truly blessed and so grateful for this opportunity to be a part of such a loving school community.
I am deeply honored to be a part of Desert View Elementary and excited to make a positive impact during my time here. Thank you for taking the time to read my introduction. I am looking forward to an amazing school year with all of you and continuing to grow closer relationships with all. Please reach out if there is anything that I can do for you.
Deidra Ann Martinez
Principal, Desert View Elementary
