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.
