Mr. Angel Martinez
My name is Angel Martinez and I am the counselor here at Houston Academy for International Studies. I was formerly a Spanish teacher at Lamar High School in Houston, TX. I started teaching in Cedar Hill ISD in the Dallas/Fort Worth area where I spent six years graining experience with youth of diverse backgrounds. It is there where I developed a passion for counseling students. Today, my objective is always to bring the best out of all of our students. I truly believe that the youth of today are misunderstood in many aspects, but with some insightful counseling and guidance, all high school students can achieve their hopes and dreams.
