There was a wave of pride across C. Martinez Elementary when HISD recognized Martina Deavila as the district’s Employee of the Month for October.
“Ms. Deavila is a wonderful asset to our campus and this recognition is very well deserved," Principal Rita Sotelo said. “She is very helpful in coaching our teachers and organizing successful programs for our parents and the community.”
Whether it’s tutoring students or assisting with campus activities , Deavila is always going above and beyond her campus role.
She started with HISD 20 years ago as a critical shortage substitute at Crawford Elementary and now serves as a teacher specialist/dual language coordinator at C. Martinez Elementary.
“The children are my motivation each day, which allows me to focus on motivating the teachers,” Deavila said. “I know if I can be here to help the teachers, they are going to be happier.”
